Ron Hurdle has quite a story to tell. In 1971, he earned a degree in theatre from TCU. During his time as a student, he was elected TCU鈥檚 first Black cheerleader in 1969.  

After TCU, Hurdle enrolled in the U.S. Navy Officer Candidate School, earned two master鈥檚 degrees and a law degree, started his own law firm and teaches at the college level.  

On Feb. 7, he will share his wealth of knowledge with the TCU community at the Race & Reconciliation Initiative鈥檚 Black History Month event,  

鈥淗urdle鈥檚 story鈥痓reaking barriers鈥痑s one of TCU鈥檚 鈥榝irsts鈥 helps our campus understand both TCU鈥檚 and America鈥檚 bumpy鈥痶ransition from segregation to integration,鈥 said Karen Steele of the RRI task force. 鈥淲e think his story also exemplifies two qualities that continue to mark TCU values:鈥痳esilience and connection.鈥  

The event emerges from RRI鈥檚 oral history project, which collects stories from the campus community that tell a fuller history of TCU.
