North Central Texas College Alumna Lyndi Starr was recently named the Masked Rider at Texas Tech University, the university’s official mascot. A 2013 Mt. Vernon H i g h S c h o o l g r a d u – ate, Starr first attended NCTC in Fall 2013.
She was a member of the Stock Horse, Equestrian, and Horse Judging teams while at NCTC. In 2014, Starr and the Stock Horse Team were the Stock Horse of Texas (SHOT) Collegiate World Champions.
