Texas Tech Police Officer Floyd East Jr.
Texas Tech University

Here is another positive story about how Texas Tech and the community have come together to help the family of one of their own.

Texas Tech University has created a memorial fund to assist the family of Tech PD officer Floyd East Jr.

From Texas Tech University President Lawrence Shovanec:

Dear Texas Tech and Lubbock communities,

Texas Tech University has established a memorial fund to support the family of Officer Floyd East Jr., whose life was taken suddenly Monday while serving the university as a member of the campus police department. Officer East is survived by his wife, Carmen, and two daughters, Ana and Monica.

This week has been difficult, but I am heartened at the display of compassion and outpouring of support shown by the Texas Tech and Lubbock communities and people across the country toward Officer East’s family and the Texas Tech Police Department. I can’t begin to convey enough my deep appreciation to all law enforcement agencies involved in the timely apprehension of the suspect.

Texas Tech is a special place, and we have displayed the unwavering West Texas spirit that drives our caring for one another. Thank you for your consideration of support for the East family.”

If you would like to donate to the fund, you can visit this link to be taken to the page.

And if you would like to send condolences you can send them by mail to:
