My LBK Stories
Upon graduating from Texas Tech University, Lubbock native Bobby Cude moved to the metroplex to launch his IT career. Thirteen years later, he was burned out from driving 80 miles a day and trying to keep up with the big city’s aggressive work environment. On top of that, he was missing his kids’ recitals, plays, band practices, etc. That was when Bobby and his wife decided it was time for a change of pace. It was time to return home.
After deciding to pursue a career in the natural sciences, Calvin Clark chose to attend Texas Tech University because of its good reputation, exceptional academic center and outstanding medical facilities. Upon graduation from nursing school, Clark moved to Austin, continued his education and became a nurse practitioner. Five years later, Clark and his family felt a pull to come back to Lubbock.
