Raiders Who Rock
The purpose of the Raiders Who Rock program is to recognize outstanding students, faculty, and staff who make Texas Tech a better community for all of its members. The contributions of these individuals can range from exemplary accomplishments to small gestures, but each one positively impacts the quality of life for members of the Texas Tech and Lubbock communities.
Oftentimes these students, faculty/staff and organizations are involved in activities within the Lubbock and Tech Communities, and do the work that they do because it is fulfilling to them, not for recognition. With this understanding, we would like to recognize these Texas Tech community members through this program and in a way that allows someone else to initiate the Raiders Who Rock stories.
In 2021, Raiders Who Rock nominees will be honored in an asynchronous virtual celebration, and the top nominee from each category will receive a special award.
