Chancellor Dr. David Smith traded in his tie for a more casual look Monday. He traded places with Texas Tech Senior Jeri Rose as part of the 'Chancellor For A Day Contest.'
Smith attended Rose's biology class where he says he found the students incredibly bright and ready to enter the professional world. "What you get to do is hear them and see their excitement and aspirations in life and remember yourself and what is important," said Dr. Smith.
As for Rose, she learned what life is like in the Chancellor's Office. She also took some time out to read to a group of elementary students.
