JACK TERRILLION '58
W hile former Trustee Jack Terrillion '58 learned a lot about leadership as a Marine, it was his time at UC that enabled him to build on that experience in myriad ways, including being the only student involved in selecting an architect for the Burrstone Road campus. "It was a privilege to play a role in that process," recalls Terrillion, owner of Dallas-based Terrillion investments and noted expert on property management. "And it has been gratifying to see that beautiful site grow into an attractive campus."
That said, this Oneida Square alumnus understands the core of UC's value proposition. "It takes more than buildings to make a college. It takes dedicated professors and administrators to pull it all together," he says.
That's why Terrillion offers this tip: invest in future growth by becoming a member of the Heritage Society, as he has.

"Probably the safest investment one can make is in education. It's a resource that's not going to diminish. You're investing in the future."
