2017 Thanksgiving Luncheon

On Friday, Nov. 17, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso) celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday with a big “Thank you!” for its employees, inviting departments from across campus for a turkey lunch with all the trimmings.

Vice President for Operations Frank Stout kicked off the feast with a message of thanks to all employees for their service. As attendees noshed on turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie, they enjoyed a live band performance led by Orthopedic Surgeon Miguel Pirela Cruz, M.D.

Deans, administrators and directors from all departments volunteered as waiters and waitresses, refilling drinks, topping off slices of pie with whipped cream, and helping out in any way they could.

The annual luncheon was organized by the TTUHSC El Paso Employee Committee.
