To celebrate 150 years of leadership, TCU’s university leaders rang the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange on Friday.

TCU Chancellor Victor Boschini, John V. Roach Dean of the Neeley School of Business Daniel Pullin and other TCU leaders and alumni rang the bell to celebrate Neeley Horned Frogs leading in business and corporate roles.

Chancellor Boschini said TCU has been educating students to lead in the global community for 150 years, so this event is very exciting.

“We’re ready for the next 150 years as we continue to innovate and prepare the next generation of leaders,” Boschini said. “With this bell-ringing, we recognize and celebrate the thousands of Horned Frogs working in business, strategy and finance, leading enterprise here on Wall Street, on Main Street and around the world.”

Hettie Richardson, Associate Dean of Neeley undergraduate programs, said celebrating this milestone for TCU in front of the entire world is an honor.

“For us, it’s just it’s a celebration of where we’ve been, and where we’re going. We’ve made a lot of progress over those last 150 years, and we’ve got even more in store, especially in the near future,” Richardson said.

The university hosted a watch party on campus for the Horned Frogs who couldn’t be in New York. Event organizers passed out small bells to attendees to ring simultaneously with Chancellor Boschini.

The NYSE closing bell is rung to signify the closing of the day’s trading. Many important figures have rung the bell, and TCU get’s to add its name to that list.
