Over 700 members of the Hardin-Simmons family gathered at Globe Life Park in Arlington for HSU Night at the Rangers on June 7. Current and future students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends fellowshipped together as the Rangers took on the Houston Astros. While the Rangers lost 5-2, Hardin-Simmons won a night full of friends, food, and fun.

Board of Trustees Chairman Dr. George Newman threw the first pitch of the game. Newman served HSU as Professor of Biology and the school’s tennis coach from 1974 to 1979. He was selected as a member of the Hardin-Simmons Board of Trustees in 1995. He has also served as County Judge for Taylor County and operated the 18,000-acreBullhead Ranch. George and his wife Carolyn are long-time supporters of HSU. They have created multiple scholarships and endowments, including the HSU Grassland Initiative.

HSU Alumni is already busy planning the next HSU night at the ballpark. In 2019 they are hoping to add an Astros night for HSU’s Houston fans.
