  • From City Hall to Shuford Hall. Prior to serving Dallas as mayor, Mike Rawlings built a career in advertising, working his way up to CEO of Tracy-Locke. Now he's using his creativity to support causes of a different kind, leading Texas' third-largest city. This spring, Rawlings was inducted into the C.E. Shuford Hall of Honor at UNT's Frank W. and Sue Mayborn School of Journalism for his growing impact on the region.
  • Spirit of Service honoree. Mean Green track and field sophomore Kedron Sowells is a stand-out sprinter at UNT and in the community. The pre-med kinesiology major and his teammates started the Warmth For Heart Foundation, serving the needy in Denton through clothing drives and other projects. This spring, Sowells was named a 2013-14 Conference USA Winter Spirit of Service honoree for his dedication.
  • UNT goes plaid. As part of the university's 125th anniversary in 2015, the UNT community voted for an official tartan designed by UNT fibers students. Senior Casey Heidt's winning double-layer map design -- reflecting the UNT campus and the Denton downtown square -- incorporates UNT's official colors. The design is now registered with The Scottish Register of Tartans.
