Yesterday, was Texas Tech University System Day at the State Capitol in Austin. A Tech contingent of more than 100 was led by Chancellor Kent Hance, interim Texas Tech President Lawrence Schovance, Athletic Director Kirby Hocutt and football coach Kliff Kingsbury.

Hance, Schovance, Hocutt and Kingsbury all met with State Senator Bob Duncan (pictured) during their busy day of meetings.

Members of the contingent met with members of the Legislature to discuss Texas Tech’s growth and higher education funding.  Both the House and Senate recognized the Texas Tech delegation in separate resolutions.
