Drivers on Texas Tech University's campus have all encountered them. Some drive right through, hoping to not get caught. Some give a friendly smile and reciprocate a guns up. Whether you love them or hate them, the entry booths to the Texas Tech campus are there for an important reason.
Lance Rampy, events and guest relations manager for Texas Tech’s Transportation and Parking Services, said the purpose of the entry stations and their attendants is to keep the campus safe.
On February 11, 1926, black historian, journalist and author Carter G. Woodson declared the second week of February - a week that included both Abraham Lincoln's birthday on the 12th and Frederick Douglass' on the 14th - to be Negro History Week.
Karlos Hill, an assistant professor of history at Texas Tech, said Woodson felt that black history was going unrecognized, and sought to change that.

Dr. Clive Kinghorn, the only person to manage all of Texas Tech University's broadcast entities - KTXT-FM and KOHM-FM, later KTTZ-FM, passed away last month. He was 77.
Fondly remembered by many at Texas Tech and those in the Lubbock radio community as "Dr. Radio," Kinghorn was loved for his knack of bringing the community together.
Todd Chambers, the interim associate dean for undergraduate affairs and former colleague of Kinghorn's, said when Lubbock was in the process of obtaining an NPR affiliate station, Kinghorn was a prominent figure in the efforts.
