LeTourneau University President Dr. Dale A. Lunsford has named Eric McCrory as Special Assistant to the President, effective June 18. McCrory will be assisting the president in community building and fundraising for the university’s strategic initiatives.
A Dallas native, McCrory earned his Bachelor of Business Administration in Human Resource Management from the University of North Texas. Immediately out of college, he worked for Campus Crusade for Christ as campus ministry staff, first at University of Oklahoma and then at Texas Tech University. The opportunity to serve as Director of Youth Ministries at First United Methodist Church in Longview brought him to his wife’s hometown in East Texas in 1999. He has worked for AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals for 12 years, rising from sales representative, to sales trainer and most recently to the position of District Sales Manager. He and his wife, Katherine, have three young children, Kate, 9; Hannah, 7; and Nathan, 3. They attend Mobberly Baptist Church. “Eric’s experience and enthusiasm for our mission will serve our university well,” Lunsford said.
