Inside Texas Tech: Land Arts 2017

The seven students in the Land Arts of the American West class began thinking about the course’s finale from the first day of their two-month outdoor classroom. And some say the experience will continue to imbue their work in the future.

Texas Tech alum Dr. Jeremy Brown knows that trying to fill the shoes of his predecessor at Hospice of Lubbock isn’t realistic. But he’s dedicated to working every day to ensure the nonprofit is the best it can be and continues to provide dignity and relief to those in its care. Brown is also the medical director of the organization.

Charlie Wasson served as executive director at Hospice of Lubbock for eight years before his sudden and unexpected death in May. His successor, Dr. Jeremy Brown, will now serve as both executive director and medical director.

It’s a new year. I hope your 2018 is off to an amazing start. It’s been a pure joy to come to you every Thursday afternoon since 2013 to share what’s going on in arts and entertainment in Lubbock and beyond. However, all good things come to end, or rather evolve into new projects and ideas.

Proceeds from the university’s recycling efforts since 2013 have led to scholarships totaling $130 thousand dollars since 2013. In the last fiscal year the sustainability program recycled almost 600 tons of materials dropped off at the University Student Housing Recycling Center.

Texas Tech officials learned a lot about their emergency alert system following the shooting of a university police officer in October and a bomb threat the next month. Tech emergency management coordinator and university’s general counsel Ronald Phillips says reviews after each incident provided insights that will help make the system better.

“These incidents have taught us things about how we respond, how we handle things, how we communicate, and hopefully we have learned from each incident and we get more effective and more efficient,” he says.
