History of Sterry

Sterry Hall is named in recognition of Martha Elizabeth Sterry, who served as an Associate Professor of Geography. The Faculty and Senate of Southwest Texas State College, in 1966, voted to honor the professor by naming the next women’s hall in her name. Professor Sterry is best remembered for conducting summer education abroad to Europe, Mexico, Canada, and Hawaii, while enabling students to travel by bus.
