Background

Texas is a boomerang transplant to East Texas, returning to LeTourneau University after severing as Registrar at Tarrant County College in Fort Worth and as Registrar and Director of Institutional Research at Austin College in Sherman. He is a two-time alumnus of LeTourneau, earning both his graduate and undergraduate degrees in Business and is currently completing his dissertation at Northcentral University for the completion of a Ph.D. in Higher Education Administration. Texas is an Eagle Scout, an avid cyclist, triathlete, and advocate for health and wellness as well as a certified Stephen Covey 7 Habits instructor and an award winning public speaker and leadership trainer. His wife, Shana, works for Longview Regional Hospital as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist(CRNA) and they have two beautiful children at home, Lukas (6yrs) and Vivian (3yrs).

Personal Statement

After losing his first wife to cervical cancer at age 35, Texas discovered the power of Post Traumatic Growth which has created the opportunity for him to share his Christian testimony and the importance of work/life balance at leadership events and conferences around the country. Rüegg’s return to LeTourneau University brings an accumulation of personal and professional experience that spans both public and private higher education as well as significant leadership roles in state, regional, and national professional organizations. He is excited to be back at LeTourneau to once again promote and serve Christian higher education.
