“As vice chancellor for academic affairs and then also provost, Dr. Koehler has played an important part in raising the academic aspirations and reality of TCU,” religion professor Nadia Lahutsky said.

All true hockey fans already know the story of “The Miracle on Ice,” even though it happened more than 20 years ago.
