Texas Southern University and the Houston Community will pay tribute to a Legend during this year’s Founders Day observance, scheduled for Friday, September 13th at 11 a.m. in the H & PE Arena on campus.

Long time TSU professor and founder/coach of the TSU’s highly acclaimed Debate Team, Dr. Thomas F. Freeman will be the keynote speaker for the Founders Day program. Recognized as an ‘Institution within the Institution’, this year’s Founders Day ceremony will celebrate Freeman’s illustrious career. After 69 years of teaching psychology and philosophy, motivating and mentoring hundreds of students, Freeman will retire at year’s end. Among his many accolades and accomplishments, Freeman is the founding dean of the Thomas F. Freeman Honors College as well as the Distinguished Director of Forensics, having directed the TSU Debate team for 69 years.

This year’s theme will be ‘Honoring the Legendary Dr. Thomas Franklin Freeman for Six Decades of Excellence in Achievement’.

This event promises to be like no other as a list of Who’s Who in Houston is expected to attend. Some of the guests will include current and former members of the TSU Debate Team, students from the Honors College, TSU Retirees, alumni, current and retired faculty and staff and a host of dignitaries and friends.
