Congressman Honors Preston Smith

Preston Smith was not only honored in Texas, but in Washington as well. Congressman Randy Neugebauer memorialized Smith on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives in Washington, D.C.

Neugebauer said Smith was a great man in Texas politics, whose impact on the entire state, especially in the area of education, is immeasurable. "He was responsible for opening more colleges and universities than any other governor in our state. Known as the "people's governor" it was not surprising to call his office and have him answer his own phone."

The Congressman said Texas, West Texas, and Lubbock are a better place today because of the distinguished service of Governor Preston Smith.
