Local Leaders Show Appreciation to Neighboring City

On a daily basis, people from surrounding cities travel into Lubbock for all we have to offer. On Monday Lubbock said "thank you" to our neighboring town of Clovis.

The city of Clovis has a slogan... "Clovis. A city on the move." So our city leaders wanted to see where they're going. Our local city council and other dignitaries boarded a charter bus for a tour of Clovis. First stop, the Plains Regional Medical Center. It's a hospital that's currently growing. It has a new cancer treatment center and emergency room.

Next, what's a trip to Clovis without a visit to one of it's major tourist attractions: Norman Petty Studios? That's where Buddy Holly recorded his first hits. Siting in a chair Buddy Holly himself used, Councilman Jim Gilbreath says, "I'm bringing my wife back and we're going to spend as much time as these people will afford us and just soak it in."

Clovis City Manager, Ray Mondragon, says, "We wanted to host them, because we wanted them to know what's going on in Clovis. There's a lot of positive things going on. Clovis is a city on the move."

Lubbock dignitaries had lunch at Cannon Air Force Base and toured what is one of the major economic drivers in Clovis. They didn't forget Clovis Community College and the site of Clovis' new cheese factory, a $400 million facility that will add 230 permanent jobs to the area.
