Terry Foundation Scholarship
My name is Marco Padilla and I am a current Texas Tech and former Science and Engineering Magnet student. I am writing to you regarding the many scholarship opportunities available to Science and Engineering Magnet students who might be interested in pursuing a degree at Texas Tech, in particular, The Terry Foundation scholarship award, of which I am grateful recipient.
I really hope we can work together to expose hard-working and leadership-oriented students to the benefits of both the Terry Foundation and Texas Tech University. Science and Engineering Magnet provided me with an amazing educational foundation and I am eternally grateful for the doors that opened. It is my greatest hope you can help me repay this debt by helping current and future students realize their maximum potential here also.
The ApplyTexas college application opened up in August and the Terry Foundation Scholarship application closes on January 15th for incoming freshmen. As you seek to identify strong, academically-inclined students and encourage them to apply to both Texas Tech and to the Terry Foundation, before the quickly-approaching windows close, please let me know how I can be of service.
I would also like it to be known that this is not a Texas Tech exclusive scholarship. I am a Texas Tech Terry Scholar and that is why I am recruiting for Texas Tech. This is a Texas school Scholarship and there are other universities in Texas that have this scholarship. The students just have to go to the Terry Foundation website and should be able to find what other schools offer this scholarship. I will also be on winter break starting December 10th and ending January 9th. If you would like me to come speak to the seniors I will be more than excited to do so whether during school or after. I just ask that you give me a few days notice so I can make plans to be there. If you would like to share this email with the other schools in Townview, please feel free. I just ask that you remove this paragraph.
If you would like to discuss this matter further, please feel free to reach out to me. Thank you for your consideration.

The Student Executive Leadership Council from the School of Business and Management has planned a variety of activities to celebrate Red Ribbon Week on Monday, October 27, 2014 – Friday, October 31, 2014. From its beginning as a way to honor the late DEA agent Enrique Camarena and his crusade against illegal drug use in this country to schools’ continuing the tradition of wearing red ribbons to promote choosing a healthy, drug-free lifestyle, Red Ribbon Week has become a nationally recognized week of awareness of the dangers of drug use in our society.
The activities for the week include:
Monday, October 27, 2014--Red Ribbon Day (Students will be able to secure red ribbons from Suite 390.)
Tuesday, October 28, 2014-- “Don’t Get Messed up with Drugs!” (Students are asked to wear mixed-match clothing.)
Wednesday, October 29, 2014-- “Say No to Drugs!” (Students and staff are asked to wear red. Students will also take the red ribbon pledge.)
Thursday, October 30, 2014-- “United we Stand in a Drug-Free Land!” (Students are asked to wear patriotic colors---red, white, and blue.)
