Established by Chancellor Hance in the fall of 2007 to advance recruitment efforts and the overall academic quality of students, the Top Scholars program at Texas Tech is a strategic recruitment initiative that actively recruits students who have been admitted to the university with a score above 1500 on their SAT or 34 on their ACT. Chancellor Hance personally recruits these top scholars by making personal phone calls, paying for their travel to Lubbock and organizing first-class tours of campus.
Chancellor Kent Hance announced today the recruitment of two top scholars, Jacob Hinojos and Hance Clark, to Texas Tech University. Both students received perfect scores on their college admissions exams and will be attending the university in the fall of 2014.
Prior to Hinojos and Clark, only six students in the university’s history have received a 1600 on their SAT or ACT and enrolled at Texas Tech. This year alone, Chancellor Hance has reached out to seven students through the Top Scholars program who have received perfect scores on their college admissions exams and applied to Texas Tech.
