He is a 1991 graduate from McMurry’s School of Business and became a member of the Board of Trustees this year as well. In doing so, he is also following in the footsteps of his late father who also served as a member of this same Board, Mr. George Shoup Jr. David is the husband of Christy Shoup and they have 3 children. After graduating from McMurry, Shoup went to work for the company and business that his father, George, founded in 1958. Six years later, in 1997, he assumed control of the business and has been the major Stockholder and C.E.O. of Constructors Inc. until present day. Shoup’s company resides in Carlsbad and Southeastern New Mexico. He delivered a powerful message to all incoming students and faculty alike. Photo by Sienna Miller
