Texas Tech Foundation Holds First Meeting in El Paso

The Texas Tech Foundation board of directors made its first visit to El Paso last week. The board meets quarterly to provide volunteer leadership to facilitate institutional advancement.

“The Foundation board represents the four universities,” said Vice Chancellor for Institutional Advancement Lisa Calvert. “El Paso is such a dynamic part of the system and the growth has been tremendous, so we brought the foundation board here to celebrate that great growth, as well as Dr. Lange’s vision.”

Members met on campus Thursday afternoon, followed by dinner at the home of Texas Tech University System Regent Rick Francis and Mrs. Francis. On Friday, board members returned to campus for their meeting, and then attended the Lawrence Tyler Francis Grand Lobby dedication at the Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing. Regent Rick Francis, Mrs. Francis and their son have always been great champions of the TTU System and its institutions.
