I hope this finds you all healthy, well, and enjoying the spring weather. I want to begin by saying how wonderful it was to see so many of you in Ft. Worth for the Winter Gathering. The fellowship and  comradery are a constant reminder for me of how vast our TCURM network of Alumni truly is, and I am grateful for your faith and trust in me to get to play this role.

Our Alumni group has made great strides over the past year and the momentum continues to grow as we welcome two new members to the Board of Directors, Missy Bonds and Frank McLelland. I would like to thank Gilly Riojas and Wayne Cockrell for their time and commitment to the Alumni Board, their guidance, and their friendship.

It is hard to believe that this school year is almost over. On Thursday, May 5th our Alumni Association will gain an incredible group of new members. Congratulations to this year’s class of young men and women who have worked hard and overcome a year full of changing procedures, uncertainty, and many other challenges due to the Covid Pandemic. We are proud of you and your accomplishments!

While this school year comes to an end the faculty is continuing to look ahead to next year and we as Alumni have a duty to help RECRUIT, RECRUIT, RECRUIT. The strength and integrity of this program is based solely on the number of high-quality candidates that apply, attend, and graduate.

Lastly, save the date for the TCURM Summer Gathering. June 17th – 19th in Amarillo, Texas.  Information for hotel rooms is on the website and will be constantly updated on the TCU Ranch Management Facebook Page. Ticket sales for the weekend’s festivities will be available soon!

I am looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible in Amarillo this summer. Again, thank you for allowing me to serve such a wonderful organization in this capacity.

Go Frogs!
