UTA graduates represent the best of North Texas and beyond. From stories of triumph and perseverance, they demonstrate the drive to succeed and the willingness to make themselves better. Chris Gay is one of those stories. A former UTA baseball player, he returned to campus after a bout with cancer and a 30-year hiatus and will graduate this week, a semester before his daughter finishes her degree at UTA. Watch his story now and follow UTA's social media channels over the next few days to see many similar stories of inspiration.
