New Foundation Board Member
The Terry Foundation is pleased to announce the addition of Brian Carroll (UT 1994) to the Board of Directors.
Mr. Carroll fills an open board seat following the resignation of Mr. J.D. Davis, after his dedicated service on the board for 20 years (2000-2020). The selection of Mr. Carroll follows the wishes of founder, Howard Terry, who provided that future leadership on the board would be selected from among former recipients of the Terry Scholarship. Currently, nine of the twelve board seats are filled by Terry Scholar Alumni.
Brian is a 2002 graduate of Baylor School of Law, a 1998 graduate of the University of Texas School of Engineering (BS, Architectural Engineering) and a 1994 graduate of Lampasas High School in Lampasas, Texas. He is the managing partner of the law firm of Sanderford & Carroll, where he nationally practices construction litigation and also serves as a mediator on a wide range of civil litigation matters. Additionally, he is the adjunct co-professor of Construction Law at the Baylor School of Law. Prior to law school and after graduating from UT, Brian worked for two large civil engineering firms focused on heavy civil engineering projects.
He is married to Laura Elizabeth Carroll, from Austin. They have two children, Creighton and Cannon who are active in Scouting. They are active members of the Temple First United Methodist Church, and various local community activities.
