Nolan Ryan will keynote the 27th annual scholarship event.
Texas Tech University’s Rawls College of Business will host its Annual Dallas Scholarship Breakfast from 7-9 a.m. April 19 in the Regency Ballroom of the Fairmont Hotel.
Nolan Ryan, baseball’s all-time strikeout leader, will be the keynote speaker. The 10th president of the Texas Rangers will speak by being interviewed by Randy Galloway, sports radio talk show host for ESPN’s Dallas affiliate, KESN-FM.
The breakfast, an event that raises scholarship funds for business students, is the only fundraising event the college hosts in the year. The college has sponsored an annual alumni event in the Dallas area since 1984, and over the years it has raised more than a million dollars.
Allen T. McInnes, dean of the Rawls College of Business, will also attend and speak on behalf of the college. An auction of a signed Nolan Ryan jersey will close the breakfast.
Since 1999 the funds raised by the breakfast have helped to support the education of nearly 700 students.
