SAN MARCOS — “This is a fitting tribute to Jerry and Cathy Supple,” said Texas State President Denise M. Trauth, who succeeded Supple. “They did so much for the university and for the San Marcos community. It is somewhat humbling to follow in President Supple’s footsteps, but I inherited a wonderful, dynamic university in large part because of his efforts.”
Supple became president of Texas State in 1989 and retired in August 2002.
