Big Tex laying flat on his back being prepared for the state fair

Howdy, folks

Imagine being the fashion designer charged with dressing a cowboy who has a 100-inch neck and 181-inch sleeve length. That's exactly what Corinna Bejarano Wright ('88) has spent the last 12 years doing — designing the unique styles of the State Fair of Texas' official greeter, Big Tex. This year, the 52-foot cowboy sports a new canary yellow and sailor blue Dickies work shirt that features red piping for the 2008 Ignite Your Senses theme. Eight seamstresses spent two weeks sewing 80 yards of awning material for the shirt. Wright, a senior designer at Williamson-Dickie Manufacturing who received her degree in fashion design, is shown with Big Tex on his 50th birthday in 2002.

Alumni association launches new web site

The North Texas Exes Alumni Association invites UNT alumni to visit its newly launched web site — — to learn more about the alumni association and its programs, services and membership.

The new site is designed to expand the alumni association's existing online presence while helping it communicate with alumni, students and friends, says Derrick Morgan, executive director of the association.

"Reaching out to UNT's alumni and helping them make connections with each other and the university is an integral part of our alumni association's mission," Morgan says.

"Our new web site will be an important tool in helping us accomplish that."

For information about becoming a member of the North Texas Exes Alumni Association, visit or call (940) 565-2834. And don't forget to keep up with upcoming events by visiting their online calendar.
