Gov. Perry in Lubbock Wednesday

Governor Rick Perry is in Lubbock tomorrow – he’ll help honor Texas Tech Chancellor Kent Hance at a reception on campus and accept an award for his work in rehabilitating drug offenders.

Perry will make remarks at an event honoring Texas Tech Chancellor Kent Hance at a reception on campus.

Doors at the United Spirit Arena will open at 4:30 p.m., with the program beginning at 5 p.m. — a reception will follow and Tech says the event is free and open to the public.

Prior to the Tech event,  the Governor will receive the National Association of Drug Court Professionals’ governor of the year award at a ceremony in Judge Ruben Reyes’ 72nd District courtroom. Reyes presides over the drug court in Lubbock County.

The Governor is being honored because of the growth of drug court programs in Texas. When Perry took office in 2000, the state had only seven drug courts. The number now stands at 112.

Perry is rumored to be mulling over another run at the White House but has made no formal announcement.
