I grew up on the Staked Plains--Levelland---and attended TT...as did my husband earlier than I did. (trivia note--my graduating class from TT was the last group that came under the old name of the school--Texas Technological College. So that's what my diploma said. Another trivia--taking up your time--I didn't even get to go through the ceremonies, either, for that was the night the so-called "double tornado" tore up the west side of Lubbock, and the Coliseum at TT had to be used for refugees. Weeks later, I received my diploma in the mail and a letter from the President that began: "I bestow this degree upon you as a graduate of...."...whatever.
