Making a Difference

While Tarleton has experienced a tremendous amount of growth and is now one of the major public universities in Texas, our faculty, staff, and students are committed to maintaining the spirit, pride and traditions of this great institution.

The President's Circle was created to continue the established traditions of supporting our Tarleton family -- students, faculty, and staff -- as well as our community, and therefore provide a source of unrestricted funds to support a wide variety of programs. In 2010, the Circle's initial campaign provided over new funds, which were distributed across campus for scholarships and internships, as well as selected programs for individual colleges.

Funds from the President's Circle reach far and wide, including twelve $1,000 student scholarships, funding to help send a congressional intern to Washington, D.C., and support for each college, the Rodeo Team, and KTRL, Tarleton's public radio station.

The President's Circle will continue to make a difference in our Tarleton family for years to come and foster a campus of distinction, encouraging our students to not only acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to establish successful careers and become responsible citizens and leaders, but also to share our unique Tarleton spirit with all they encounter.

"I am teaching today because of the scholarships I received while at Tarleton. I saw each scholarship as a direct investment in my life as a teacher. That investment will continue to grow as I invest in each of my students in the classroom. It is a gift that keeps on giving."

- Candace Hoggard

"It is such a wonderful feeling knowing that I will have a minimal amount of debt to repay. I have the scholarships I received at Tarleton to thank for that."

- Amy Hudson

"During my time at Tarleton, I was able to gain key leadership skills, such as staff management, presentation and public relation skills, that I use every day in my current career. Without my experiences at Tarleton, uncovering my passions, strengths and career goals would have been an uphill battle."
