Representative Springer Congratulates Senator Duncan on selection as Texas Tech Chancellor

Gainesville, Texas – State Representative Drew Springer issued the following statement regarding the news that State Senator Robert Duncan was selected as the finalist in the nationwide search for the next Chancellor of the Texas Tech University System.

“I want to congratulate the Texas Tech Board of Regents on the excellent choice in naming Senator Robert Duncan as the new university Chancellor. Senator Duncan ‘s presence in the legislature will be missed, however, I am confident Senator Duncan will have just as positive of an impact on the young minds of West Texas. It has been a true pleasure working with Senator Duncan throughout my first session in the legislature and I look forward to working with him as Chancellor of the University of Texas Tech. I also thank Chancellor Kent Hance for his commitment and leadership to Texas Tech and the State of Texas.”
