I chose the U of A because I was raised to be a Razorback fan and wanted to go to school there since I was a child.

My fondest memory was spending time with friends, walking the campus and meeting my wife.

The most influential figures during my time at the U of A were professors John Dominick and Robert Stapp.

 My favorite U of A tradition was singing “Hard to be Humble” after a victory.

In regards to opportunities I received at the U of A, as Spanish minor, I had the opportunity to study abroad in Chile the summer after my junior year.  I learned how to develop relationships with people who were vastly different from me. I was also a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity and have lifelong friendships from that.

I am an Alumni Member to support the U of A.

I am involved currently with the Alumni Association as the Dallas Chapter’s marketing chair.  I really enjoy helping the school and doing what I can to improve it.  I have also enjoyed learning about all of the great things the U of A is doing and accomplishing.

I give back because I want other kids from this area to have the same experience I had.  I also know the school really depends on volunteers.

My favorite Alumni events are the watch parties, when we are winning.

My favorite Razorback possession is an extremely heavy, stone statue of a Razorback.  It was a wedding present from a close family friend. His name is Ragnor II.

Now back in Texas, I am currently involved in promotional products. About two-and-a-half years ago, I started my own company, Meyer Dunlap. One of the best things about my job is working with people.

Advice I would give to others would be something I was once told by a friend/mentor, Dave Morton, the CEO for Community First Bank in Arkansas, when I asked for advice on my career.  His response, “Turn ’em on and turn ’em off.”  He was referring to the lights in the building.  Work harder than anyone else and treat people well.
