Implicit Dream: The Texas Dairy Business and Its Long Road of Deferred Excellence.

NTCC Presidential Scholar, Alyssa Ochoa, argues that Texas' great dairy advantages have been masked by a long history of environmental difficulties. But these has been overcome, and modern Texas stands to excel in dairy as do the best dairy nations of Europe. Ochoa won first place in the 2023 McGraw Hill Poster Contest for this work, and presented her essay on this subject both at the 2023 Texas State Historical Association in El Paso, and the 2023 meeting of the Great Plains Honors Council in Wichita Falls, Texas.

James Dickson

Honors Scholar James Dickson on Tom Seabourne:

This presentation explores how NTCC’s Tom Seabourne has functioned as a “voice in the wilderness” for Texans of the late-twentieth, and early-twenty-first centuries. During an era when spotlight sports correlate with rising obesity, Seabourne’s message is doubly urgent.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M09l9QxML5c

This vodcast was given for the virtual meeting of the Great Plains Honors Council in March, 2021.

Harold Nix was a remarkable, powerful Daingerfield lawyer, who ended up owning the county’s more remarkable courthouse. But who was he? Thompson supplies perhaps the best scholarly account of Nix to date. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iw2pej5QWiE&t=70s
