REALTOR® Magazine honors North Texas Alum with Prestigious “30 under 30” Award
REALTOR® Magazine’s “30 under 30” for 2016 was recently announced honoring 30 of the country’s premier professionals in the real estate industry. This year Dallas’ own, Scottie Smith II of Scottie Smith II & Associates was chosen out of nearly 400 applicants and will be featured in the May/June issue of REALTOR® Magazine.
As a native of Houston, Scottie learned how to make an impact early as the middle child among his ten siblings, and that influence can be seen in the trajectory of his business. Scottie started his agency with just one agent and since then the business has grown over 200% year after year with more agents joining now one of the fastest growing independent real estate brokerages in Texas.

Thank A Teacher
Has a UNT teacher made a positive difference in your life? Let them know.
Outstanding teachers at UNT do make a difference for students. They make learning challenging and fun; they are available when needed; and they weather many storms with students to foster bright futures. When teachers have made this kind of a difference, many students wish for a way to say “Thanks”.
UNT students and alums have the opportunity to say “Thanks” through the “Thank a Teacher” Program here at UNT. Current students and alums will have until May 12, 2016 to complete the form at http://thanks.unt.edu to share their thanks with their UNT teacher(s). You may complete as many of these forms as you wish (one for each teacher you wish to thank). You may also choose to remain anonymous. Your notes will be sent to your teachers as part of a letter of recognition from the Provost with copies to their Deans and Department Chairs!
Fill out an Alumni Update Form online for invitations to exclusive Honors College Alumni Events, including happy hours, networking functions, tours, and more!
