The Honors College Eagerly Awaits “A Taste of Honors” on February 27, 2018

January 19, 2018

The John V. Roach Honors College is eagerly preparing for “A Taste of Honors,” an event on February 27, 2018 at TCU. A Taste of Honors will feature Dr. James I. Cash, Jr., TCU Basketball Hall of Fame member, Harvard Business School Professor Emeritus, and board member on some of the most prominent companies in the United States. As an undergraduate at TCU, Dr. Cash cared deeply about his academic experience, which is evidenced by his Academic All-American achievement. Dr. Cash notes that he has had “no prouder moments than being able to wear my purple and white” at his recent induction to the Academic All-American Hall of Fame.

Dr. Cash first became familiar with the Honors College through Mr. John V. Roach, the namesake of the college. Upon meeting Dean Diane Snow, Dr. Cash sensed her passion for Honors education and her dedication to the success of Honors at TCU. Dr. Cash states that while TCU is a strong institution, there is “always room for improvement, and the John V. Roach Honors College is a key component to enhancing the reputation and academic excellence of TCU.”

During A Taste of Honors, Dr. Cash will interview Mr. Doug McMillon, president and CEO of Wal-Mart Inc., and one of the most influential figures in business. This event will simultaneously provide an opportunity for supporters of the Honors College to learn more about current Honors students’ research projects. A Taste of Honors directly benefits Honors College undergraduate research, and Honors students and faculty advisors will be in attendance to display and discuss ongoing Honors-supported research.

There are four levels of sponsorship opportunities:

Summa Cum Laude $10,000

  • Dinner for eight guests with premium seating
  • Invitation for eight guests to an exclusive pre-event reception with Dr. Cash and Mr. McMillon
  • Recognition in all pre-event marketing, invitation, event program, and signage

The John V. Roach Honors College offers unparalleled opportunities for intellectual and personal growth, and Honors places a strong emphasis on high-impact practices, one of which is undergraduate research. Dean Snow stresses that Honors undergraduate research projects provide an opportunity for Honors students to “formulate ideals, principles and beliefs that guide their behavior and shape their decisions as discerning consumers of knowledge.” Honors students are high achievers, willing to explore complexities of knowledge and to employ interdisciplinary approaches, cross-cultural awareness, and creative problem solving. Through undergraduate research projects, Honors students break out of their comfort zones and take risks to explore innovative strategies. In the process, Honors students gain greater depth and breadth of knowledge, increased interaction, and meaningful reflection.

Yet, undergraduate research comes at a cost. Dr. Cash is proud to support A Taste of Honors, and his ultimate goal is for the event to “increase the support and visibility of the Honors College.” A Taste of Honors provides an exciting opportunity to hear Dr. Cash interview Mr. McMillon, while highlighting the important work taking place in Honors. Honors welcomes and encourages your support of undergraduate research, a crucial component of Honors education.
