The Governor and First Lady of Texas were in Lubbock for a special reason. The Texas Tech Health Sciences Center School of Nursing is honoring Anita Perry for her role as a nurse and her long time commitment to health care by naming the school of nursing after her.

Health Science Center President John Baldwin says naming the school of nursing after the First Lady of Texas will bring a new and distinguished presence to the school.
