PLN’s The Daily Roar

My apologies for the delay in getting some information up lately. As many of you know, I worked in Consumer Banking from 2008 to January of this past year. I finally decided that I wanted out of that industry and after my MBA was awarded to me, I was offered a job in Southern California by an Investment Firm. I passed on that, which was partial mistake, until the same company opened a location here in North Dallas, so in my off time, I have been doing things to get the ball rolling, among them have been studying like crazy to pass a couple of tests to dive right in and make the income I have been wanting to make. So there is that. Anyway, to TAMUC related things….

Golf-

The Lady Lions are currently in second place overall in the Arkansas Fort Smith Invitational, and CJ Clem is in third overall for the Men’s team that is in 8th place. There are only 3 strokes that separate them from 3rd place, so this one is going to be tight. Huge props to our Lady Linksters and Men Linksters for their performances.

Softball-

Lady Lions to host open tryouts.

Snip per the official site-

The A&M-Commerce softball team, in preparation for its inaugural season in 2015, is holding an open tryout on Wednesday, April 16, at the Cain Sports Complex. The tryout is available for current full-time A&M-Commerce students, and is set to begin at 3:15 p.m. Prospective players requested to bring their own cleats and glove, and must carry at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA.

This I am happy to see, the potential for some walk-ons and former players who were standouts to play for the school. Good move by the Softball crew.

 

Soccer-

Huge props to the Lady Lions Soccer squad and HC Neil Piper for hosting a Soccer clinic. The group took the 30 minute trip east on HWY 11 to play with some local kids in Sulphur Springs and get them started playing a game. The Facebook site has some great pics below.

University related-

John Mark Dempsey from KETR has a talk at the Blacklands Cafe with Wyman Williams, the current head of Development for the College of Business at TAMUC, regarding the 125th anniversary of the founding of TAMUC. Also, Williams speaks about how education post High School is funded, and why tuition is so dang high these days. The article is well worth your time and chock full of good tidbits about how State Universities are funded and how education was paid for when my parents were attending versus now.
