Terry Morrow joined the Art Department at Texas Tech in fall of 1968. His teaching responsibilities covered the areas of printmaking and drawing. During his first two years at TTU, all classes were taking place in the (former) Architecture building and the memorable barracks. During 1981, Professor Morrow initiated the Saturday Morning Art Project (SMAP), an enrichment program for gifted and talented high school students within the Lubbock Independent School District. Terry assisted these students every other Saturday morning for over twenty-four years.

Over the years, Professor Morrow’s administrative service has served the art program very well. In 1984 Terry initiated a class at the Junction campus for gifted and talented high school art students from the Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma region. For approximately 15 years, he provided a week- long “summer camp” experience for these high school students. Soon thereafter he began to offer graduate printmaking and drawing classes at the Junction campus.
