“There has been some action on every item that’s been brought up, either planning hasn’t been implemented, a time frame for the when the next steps may be taken, but I can assure you, it’s just not sitting in a drawer,” Lawrence Schovanec, Texas Tech’s President, says.

Before becoming the university’s 16th president in 2016, he taught in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. Like all faculty, he was required to have office hours, where he’d meet and discuss academic issues with students. He’s now decided to carry that notion into his role as head of the university.

But it was Joe’s arrival at Dachau in 1945 that left an indelible mark on both father and son.

Byron and Hi Newby know that their $110,000 gift to Alzheimer’s research at Texas Tech’s Health Sciences Center won’t directly bring a cure for the anguishing and debilitating disease.
