Texas Tech Fetes Retiring Ombuds, Introduces Successor

At a reception this week, Texas Tech celebrated the retirement of its first student Ombuds. Kathryn Quilliam created the Ombuds program more than seven years ago after working for the university for two decades. Quilliam said she fulfilled all of her goals as student ombudsman, which included the creation and solidification of an office that is both effective and respected on the campus. The position will now be filled by Drew Canham, who previously worked for Texas Tech's Student Judicial Programs. "I certainly have a good office to step into and excellent shoes to fill," Canham said. "It's nice to step into a job knowing everything has gone so well." Canham earned his Juris Doctor from Ohio Northern University in 2003 and a Ph.D. from TTU last year. (Daily Toreador.)
