Grassburr distribution numbers decline, Student Publications aims to increase awareness

The Grassburr has been the official yearbook of Tarleton State University since 1916. Every student is encouraged to pick up their Grassburr each year. Recently, the number of students picking up their copy has declined. The Office of Student Publications hopes to increase these numbers so that more students will take advantage of owning their own piece of Tarleton history.


James Dearth- a Tarleton legend

James Dearth came to Tarleton in 1996 after leaving the University of Tulsa to marry his wife. In his time as a Texan he was able to snag 77 receptions for 992 yards and nine touchdowns, according to Tarleton Sports. Tarleton left the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) in 1994 to join the Lonestar Conference (LSC) in Division II of the National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA). Until Dearth, Tarleton had yet to produce an NCAA All-American. Dearth was named to the NCAA Division II All-American team and received first team All-LSC South Division honors in both 1997 and 1998. In 1998, Dearth received the LSC Offensive Lineman of the Year award.
