Benefit Memorial Held for Bill Price

He touched the lives of many on the South Plains, but Bill Price's memory will live on at the National Ranching Heritage Center. Hundreds of people attended the memorial fundraiser at the center Saturday evening in honor of Price. Proceeds from the chuck-wagon dinner, live auction, and silent auction will benefit the Bill Price Memorial.

"The sculpture is by Texas Tech graduate, Garland Weeks, who's made quiet a mark in the field of western art. It features an old bronc rider waiting for the next bronc, and that's the title of the piece", said Byron Price, Bill Price's son.

The statue will remain at the Ranching Heritage Center. Price was a professional calf and steer roper, a horse trainer, and was a longtime resident of Lubbock. He started Bill Price Western Shop in Lubbock and continued to operate the store until he retired in the late 1990s.
