  1. Here's a letter to the Startelgram this morning, May 16.

    Changing TCU first and then the world

    I watched my son graduate at TCU. What a spectacular day!

    Then, the morning after graduation, I read about TCU's lack of diversity. ("Analysis: 70 percent of TCU students are white," Sunday)

    What if instead, there were an article about some of the amazing students of diverse backgrounds who graduated?

    What if that inspired students from diverse backgrounds to look at TCU?
    I talked to some:

    ▪ A student whose father was a Fort Worth police officer killed on duty.

    ▪ A student from Burma who came to America for a better life.

    ▪ An Army vet who came to TCU 10 years older than the typical student.

    These three will become teachers to lead the next generation.

    There are similar stories from nursing, business and the arts and sciences.

    Maybe an article could have celebrated those students who are ready to change the world.

    The current media environment is about negativity, tearing everything down. It's too much work to try and accent the positive. It's one of the reasons I don't watch or read much "news" anymore. Thanks for posting the letter.

    Edit: I just read the thread and article about Michael Collins. I highly recommend...it's refreshingly good.
     
  3. I'm not a TCU alum, but am much more interested in Mike's uplifting grad profiles than seeing the local rag shart all over the local institution of higher learning.
