Personal Financial Planning

PFP Alumni Advisory Board

Words from the President

The mission of the Board is to promote and support the Personal Financial Planning (PFP) program at Texas Tech University, thereby enhancing the educational experience and value of the degree for the mutual benefit of all stakeholders. We currently have 27 members on 5 active committees – Fundraising, Networking, Speakers/Mentorship, Opportunity Days, and Awards/Recognition.Tyler Russell

Many of you are already familiar with our PFP Double T Society but I would like to take a moment to remind everybody of this initiative. Our goal is to raise $1 Million through pledges given by alumni, students, faculty, and friends of the department. The first 100 donors to pledge at least $10,000, in a minimum of $1,000 annual increments, will receive membership. Each member will have their name placed on a plaque in the Charles Schwab PFP Technology Complex and will be recognized at the Opportunity Days Banquet in the spring.

If you would like more information about the Board or how to get involved please feel to reach out to me directly at 817-879-7611 or trussell@carterwealth.com.

We are looking forward to another great year of striving for greatness within the financial planning program.
