TAMU-T University President Dr. Emily Cutrer said “We are thrilled to be naming this field after Judy Kelley Morgan; she has a passion for students and for providing opportunities that allow them to advance and grow. Without her contributions and support, we would simply not be where we are today.” In celebration of Judy’s multi-faceted leadership in building TAMU-T, the university’s leadership faculty, staff, students, soccer teams, alumni and friends were joined by Regent Charles W. Schwartz, Chairman of the A&M Board of Regents and Chancellor John Sharp of the Texas A&M University System and Texas State Representative Gary VanDeaver.
Judy was instrumental in founding the Women for A&M-Texarkana, among many other roles through which she has led the way in the university’s outstanding growth. Beyond her work in support of TAMU-T, Judy’s roles throughout the community are unparalleled, from her leadership in establishing Texarkana Regional Arts and Humanities Council, to the Texarkana Komen Race for the Cure, and most recently, in launching a support group of volunteers in support of CASA of Northeast Texas, to name just a few.
CONGRATULATIONS JUDY! And thank you for making a difference by leading the way in Texarkana!
