In memoriam
Laurie Tucker

Fondest memory:

“My fondest memories were attending Memphis State Tiger basketball games in the Coliseum. I never missed a home basketball game. My second favorite memory was sharing my graduation from Graduate School with my brother who was receiving his undergraduate degree in 1983. My mom was so proud!”

Selecting the U of M:

“My mother was my greatest influence in life. She was a graduate, so I knew I wanted to be a Memphis State Tiger as well. Initially, I wanted to teach as my mother had done. However, I became interested in business and was able to complete a degree in accounting, which assured me of a strong job offer right out of college.”

U of M pride:

“The University advances despite the financial challenges resulting from state funding. Rather than lowering its standard or reducing services, the University and its committed leadership have pushed forward to create a top school in the state, and even in the country. I am proud to be a Tiger!”
