An important and influential family with an Emporia State family legacy is being recognized this weekend at the ESU basketball game. Paul and Odessa Terry didn’t merely dream that all eight of their children would graduate from college; they expected it. The children didn’t disappoint and, as a result, the Terrys will be honored as a 2020 Hornet Heritage Family by Emporia State University’s Alumni Association on Saturday, Feb. 8, during the Hornets’ home basketball game.
