A Message from the TAA President

tarleton alumni president

Hello Fellow Alumni-

I am thrilled to be serving as the president of the Tarleton Alumni Association during these unprecedented times. This association, along with being involved with this incredible and growing university is a dream come true.  These are exciting times for our beloved Tarleton State. With now being D1 and part of the WAC, we don’t plan on anything slowing down any time soon. There are multiple construction projects taking place at Stephenville and Fort Worth campuses, record enrollments, new degree offerings, and tons of activities and events taking place throughout the year.

My journey at Tarleton was a life changing experience. I attended from 1987-1991 and am a 1990 graduate. I continued my journey at Tarleton after graduation working on my masters degree, trying to figure out what I wanted to do in life. While in school, I was active in Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity, IFC, FCA, served as a Resident Advisor, Dorm Director, and worked part time in the TSU Police Department. I am a Legacy Alum, as both my dad(Darryl ’59) and uncle(John ’61) were Tarleton graduates. Both of my daughters, Hanna(‘19) and Hope (‘20) are also graduates and I met my wife(Cheryl) her first day on campus. I also have a son-in-law and two nephews that are TSU graduates…..You can see, purple runs in our blood.

If you are not already a member of TAA, I encourage you to join us and get involved. 100% of your dues will go towards scholarships for Tarleton students. We currently have 16 scholarships a year available, 8 being general scholarship and 8 being legacy scholarships. The Legacy Scholarship program is for children or family members of our Alumni Association members. The TAA is a great way to expand your network group, get involved, and stay in touch with the University and support our future alumni.

Each of us can play an important role in Tarleton State University’s continued success.  This is a great opportunity to pay it forward and invest in Tarleton students that will be our future leaders of tomorrow. Please consider joining the Tarleton Alumni Association, getting involved, and making a difference in the lives of our future alumni.

Bleed Purple! 

Greg Schoonmaker, ‘90
