Quote:Dear Rice Community:

I am pleased to announce the formation of the Presidential Search Committee to select Rice University’s next president. All of the search committee members have demonstrated a strong commitment to Rice and each brings special and unique expertise and experiences to the committee. The 16 members of the committee are:

Anna Margaret Clyburn ’21, former Student Association President
Jim Crownover ’61, former Chairman and Trustee Emeritus
Ann Doerr ’75 ’76, Trustee Emerita
Doug Foshee ’92, Trustee
Terrence Gee ’86, Trustee
Tommy Huie ’87, Trustee
Klara Jelinkova, Vice President of International Operations and Information Technology
Chris Johns-Krull, Speaker of Faculty Senate, Professor of Physics and Astronomy
Patti Kraft ’87, Trustee
Robert T. Ladd ’78, Chairman, Board of Trustees
Brian Patterson ’84, Trustee
Danielle Perdue ’18 ’21, former President, Black Graduate Student Association
Rebecca Richards-Kortum, Professor of Bioengineering
Ruth Lopez Turley, Professor of Sociology
Scott Wise ’71, Trustee Emeritus and former President, ARA Board
Huda Zoghbi, Trustee

I am honored to serve as chair of this committee. More biographical information on the members will be available on our website, which we expect to go live next week.

The Presidential Search Committee will work diligently, on behalf of the entire Rice community, to recruit our university’s next great leader. With so much achieved under President Leebron’s leadership, we are confident that Rice’s extraordinary reputation will attract an outstanding group of candidates.

We intend to reach out for input from stakeholders in the coming weeks. The committee has already retained the international search firm of Russell Reynolds Associates, whose engagement team has extensive experience in higher education. We will provide you with periodic reports on the committee’s progress.

In the meantime, President Leebron continues doing great work for the university and he is very focused on the year ahead.

Thank you for your steadfast support of our university. The future for Rice is bright and we can all take great pride in what we will accomplish together.

Rob Ladd ’78
Chair, Rice University Board of Trustees

By my count, only two former student-athletes (Patterson, Ladd) and one other active sports fan, but who lives outside Texas (Huie).

Jim Crownover, like Rob Ladd, was a golfer at Rice. Three consecutive board chairs have been former athletes.

Scott Wise was a pitcher for Rice as an undergraduate.

Seems like athletes are over represented on the committee if anything.

That's true in most organizational leadership.

I remember when we used to play the likes of HBU and St. Thomas, both of which were definitely at least one step down from us, for midweek games. Scott once pitched a no-hitter against, IIRC, St. Thomas. Bill Whitmore, who may have done more with less support than any other human in the history of the planet, was asked for a photo of Wise by one of the newspapers. "We don't have one, but we do have one of David Ownby. Can you use that and say it's Wise."

"But Bill, Ownby is a right-hander and Wise is a left-hander."

"So, can't you just turn the negative around?"

That was indicative of the level of support for Rice baseball pre-Graham. So Walt, relative to our other discussion, I guess in an least some areas I have to admit that Rice baseball is still on an upward trajectory from where it was 50 years ago.
