You Do What?


Gayle Duke

2014-07-12D Duke Space Museum

Gayle Duke (’65), helped Neil Armstrong reach the moon. Now her love for MTSU will help generations of students who will study in MTSU’s new $147-million Science Building reach for the stars.

Duke and her husband, Dwayne, are including the University in their estate. It will endow scholarships for science students who, like Gayle, will be the first in their families to go to college.

Duke understands the value of a degree in the sciences. After graduating with a degree in mathematics and the experience of taking the first computer science class ever offered by the University, Gayle joined IBM in Huntsville, Ala., where NASA was taking the first steps toward the moon.

“President Kennedy had decided we were going to the moon. It was exciting—such a special time,” Gayle says.

She recalls working on an Apollo flight control computer with only 16 kilobytes of memory to help guide the moon capsule on its round-trip journey of more than 475,000 miles. (Today, even a smartphone’s capacity is measured in gigabytes.)

Gayle worked on Skylab (the first U.S. space station), Spacelab, and the space shuttles.

At MTSU, Gayle had the support of mentors whose encouragement helped her graduate in just three years. Her work-study scholarship helped make college possible.

She was barely aware she was one of just a handful of women studying mathematics, much less pioneering the then-exotic field of computer science.

“I always had professors I could go talk to. You felt cared for,” she says. She developed confidence and rose through the ranks at IBM, eventually managing a department of male engineers.

“I’ve never been one to be intimidated,” Gayle says. MTSU

He won two state football championships—at Elbert County in 1995 and at Jefferson in 2012. Neither program had ever won a state title before McFerrin. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution named him high school football coach of the year in 1982, 1995, and 2012. The NFL’s Atlanta Falcons awarded him a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013.

Eddie Gossage (’82) is president of Texas Motor Speedway (TMS), where in 2014 he introduced the Big Hoss, a huge video screen along the backstretch.

In 2012, d magazine credited Gossage with turning the 1,500-acre, $250-million TMS into one of Dallas-Fort Worth’s “most underrated sports success stories, annually making millions of dollars for its owner.”

A legendary promoter, Gossage is well known for using creative, even outrageous, methods to promote the track and NASCAR. In 2010, he offered a Dallas-area radio personality $100,000 to change his name to and get a tattoo with the new name. The prank received international attention. MTSU

Britnee Kinard

Kinard also works with several other Evans County, Georgia organizations to provide support to military families and those with autistic children. True Blue! MTSU
