The UNT Foundation will host the second annual Emerald Eagle Honors: Recognizing a Lifetime of Contributions to the American Landscape. This Kennedy Center Honors-type stage production allows the University to annually celebrate three UNT alumni who have profoundly impacted our culture and society.

Honorees for this year include actor and Academy Award nominee Peter Weller; actress, former sportscaster and 1971 Miss America Phyllis George; and Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist and Academy Award-winning screenwriter Larry McMurtry.

These trailblazers will be celebrated from the Meyerson stage via career video retrospectives, remarks by speakers significant to their careers, and musical tributes by special guests and the UNT College of Music.

The show will also spotlight the wonderful stories of the evening's beneficiary, UNT's award-winning Emerald Eagle Scholars program. The Emerald Eagle Scholars program helps high-achieving but financially challenged students pursue their college dreams.
