It was good to see my friends at the University of Texas at Tyler (UTT) this week. They held a luncheon for the Heritage Society, a group who have pledged financial support to the university through their wills, insurance policies or other avenues.
UTT, with campuses in Tyler, Longview and Palestine, is doing an excellent job reaching out to students with a positive message of "You Can!" Too many times society, personal influences or circumstances send a "You Can't" message to our children. But because of their generous donations and forward thinking, this group of Texans is proclaiming boldly and clearly to this and future generations, "You Can!"
Now, that is the Texas way!
