This summer will mark a decade in my tenure as president of Sam Houston State University. After much thoughtful reflection on this professional milestone, I have decided to announce my intention to retire in August.
These past 10 years have exceeded every expectation I had when I first took office. It has been an honor to serve the students, faculty, staff and alumni of this great institution.
For my colleagues, your passion and dedication have always been a source of strength and motivation.
It was through the students that I found inspiration, even on my most challenging days.
The support and loyalty of our alumni provided the courage needed to lead and shape the future of Sam Houston State.
Only together could we have achieved so much. I am so very blessed to have had this opportunity, one that has helped make a difference in the lives of so many, including mine.
Dana G. Hoyt
President, Sam Houston State University
