President Terrill helped to make the Normal College into a State Normal College. Unfortunately, he did not become the first President of the new State Normal College. He went on to study at Yale University and then came back to Texas. He then started his own school in Dallas, Terrill School, a preparatory school for boys. President Terrill died in February 1931.
