Longtime volunteer Lamar Roach, Lamar ’60, was one of millions impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Among the items he lost to the storm was his Order of the Golden Heart medallion. Roach received the award in 2001 and has become close friends with fellow recipients like John Tyler, Texas-Austin ’63. After learning about Roach’s loss, Tyler worked with Roach’s family to organize a surprise ceremony at his Lamar University Chapter in Beaumont, Texas. The brothers presented Roach with a new medallion on Oct. 12, 2017.
