Lubbock Christian University’s chancellor will be running another organization as well.

LCU Chancellor Dr. L. Ken Jones has been appointed to lead the LCU Foundation.

Jones will be taking over for the founding president of the Foundation, David Pruett. Pruett has accepted a position with the Lanier Law Firm in Houston, where he will serve as executive director of the Lanier Foundation.

“Lubbock Christian University Foundation has been a significant blessing to the University,” said Jones. “David Pruett has done wonderful work of advancing the University through his leadership. I am honored to continue this work he has started.”

During Pruett’s time with the University, he successfully secured a $10 million gift from the J.T. and Margaret Talkington Foundation for the construction of the new nursing building on the campus, and helped develop numerous other initiatives.

LCU President Tim Perrin has also announced the appointment of Raymond Richardson as vice president for university advancement.

John King has also been appointed as senior vice president of university relations. King’s responsibilities will include raising major gifts for the University and coordinating planned giving efforts.

“LCU’s greatest strength has always been its people – men and women who share a deep commitment to the University’s mission of changing lives,” said Perrin. “We believe that our future is full of great promise and hope as together we passionately pursue that mission.”
