LUBBOCK, Texas -

A former Texas Tech president is cast in bronze. The plaque, honoring Guy Bailey, is unveiled at the administration building. He served as the 15th president from 2008 to 2012.

Bailey played a huge role in getting research funding and also served as the Chairman of the Executive Committee for the Big 12.

"The truth is, you go to Texas Tech, you work at Texas Tech, you live at Texas Tech, but Texas Tech lives in you. It lives in you so, ever since I stepped foot on this campus, Texas Tech has lived in me and it's been an important part of my life. I can't tell you how much I loved being here. There's only one thing better than the beauty of the campus, and that's the beauty of the people who work here," Bailey said.

The plaque is located in the southwest corner of the Administration Building's breezeway.
