Congratulations to Gerald B. Alley as a New Member in the SMU Board of Trustees

Gerald B. Alley, a 1975 graduate of the SMU Cox College School of Business with a Master’s Degree in Business Administration, in his wildest imagination, never would have believed to be invited to serve on the SMU Board of Trustees over 40 years later.

“I remember the first day of applying to the Graduate Program.
