Kevin Price, Success Specialist

I work to inspire students to chase their dreams and overcome the obstacles inhibiting their success. As a Student Success Specialist in University Advising, it is my job to help students succeed while they are here at Texas Tech. I help students by helping them connect to resources and assist in academic coaching, which includes preparing students to declare a major, time and stress management, study tips, test prep, organization skills, and goal setting.
While I have bounced around a few times in my career, my main passion has always been inspiring the leaders of tomorrow. After graduating from Texas Tech in 2014, I began my career as a youth minister at the First Baptist Church in Abernathy. From there, I moved to Austin, TX to work in technology sales to save money to start my own non-profit organization called, Hearing the Homeless. The mission was to inspire the youth to make a difference in the lives of people in need while documenting stories and advocating for people leaving in the streets of Austin. My next endeavor allowed me to become a counselor working within the foster care system, and my experiences there grew my passion for students and made me want to support them through their goals in higher education. 
When I am not working or playing with my dog, Luna, I enjoy riding my electric longboard, making art, and listening to music and spinning fire.
