History of Family Weekend

 

Parent of the Year Award

Started in 2013, the Parent of the Year Award is a more recent tradition added to Family Weekend. Students have the opportunity to nominate their parent, guardian, or grandparent who has impacted the student's life significantly, both personally and academically. This is a chance for Texas Tech to recognize the parents who contribute to the success of our students. The award is presented to the winners during Family Weekend on the field of the Jones AT&T Stadium.

Nomination submissions are available after move-in weekend in the fall semester and close approximately two weeks before Family Weekend.

2017 Parent of the Year nominations will open soon.
