Tech Makes it to Next Round in Bid for Presidential Library

Lubbock's bid for the George W. Bush Presidential Library is going on to the next round with three other schools. David Miller, Chairman of the West Texas Coalition for the library, just found out the coalition's proposal to build the library at Texas Tech made the first cut. Former Secretary of Commerce Donald Evans gave Miller the news Tuesday. He expressed his appreciation for Lubbock's commitment, and described the proposal as "superb."

In mid-November the coalition will present their proposal to a committee in Washington D.C. Miller says, "We're really prepared. Mr. Evans encouraged us to come and simply show what we've got. Our proposal is whole if you will."

Miller says he has a professional and compelling proposal that he's very confident in. The proposal hasn't been released yet but it includes letters of recommendation from mayors, politicians, other colleges and even elementary students. It will have to be better than the other three finalists.

NewsChannel 11 tried to get ahold of Don Evans to find out who those finalists are. He has not yet returned our calls.
