Year of Service
1987- 2017: 30 Years of Excellence.
The 2017 – 2018 School year marks the 30th Anniversary of the Terry Scholarship.
In fall 1987, 11 students at The University of Texas and 6 students at Texas A&M University comprised the first class of Terry Scholars. In fall 2017, over 1600 Terry Scholars will be enrolled across 13 of the finest public universities in Texas. These Scholars join over 3,000 Alumni in an ever-expanding family that now spans the globe and impacts nearly every major industry.
