TTU at Junction's Stubblefield Receives Top Techsan Award

by Kelly Podzemny

Robert Stubblefield, Director of Operations at Texas Tech University Center at Junction (TTU at Junction), recently received a 2015 Top Techsan award. He was honored along with three other recipients at a luncheon held at the McKenzie-Merket Center on October 9.

The Texas Tech Alumni Association selects the recipients each year. Top Techsans display extraordinary work proficiency and an attitude of team spirit within the Texas Tech family.

"I share this award with the entire staff at the Llano River Field Station as they are the sole reason for this," Stubblefield said. "As I say so often, I am only as good as the people around me and this award is true testament to such!"

Stubblefield developed a passion for TTU at Junction as a student long before becoming director in 2009. He's since played an extensive role in the development and recognition of the center and is a source of energy among the staff.

Known for his vision and commitment, he saw an opportunity for TTU at Junction to be involved in adult education and has worked to obtain several grants benefiting efforts of the center.

"Robert Stubblefield does an excellent job of managing the Center at Junction," Vice Provost Dr. Melanie Hart said. "He has expanded the outreach provided by the Center, and has done an excellent job of managing the facilities, program and staff. The award to Robert is well deserved."

Joining Stubblefield in being recognized at the luncheon were Scotty Hensler, Alicia Oliva Knight and Cory S. Powell.
