West Texas Family of the Month

Meet the Drum family, this month’s West Texas Family of the Month – Presented by UMC Health (from left to right: Brian Drum, Shana Drum, Cole Drum)

They say Lubbock has some of the friendliest people in the country, and nothing is better than a Red Raider family rooted here in Lubbock, TX.

Meet the Drum family, this month’s West Texas Family of the Month. At Campus Live, it’s all about you, Red Raider Nation. Families are an important part of the values that reflect the West Texas climate, and we’re excited to feature a monthly family who enjoys the tradition, values, and fabric of our great region.

Take a look at our Q&A with the Drum family below.

Q: What about West Texas keeps your family in this area?

A: We were all born and raised here in Lubbock. Both of our parents own their own businesses and that inspired us to open our own. The people in the Lubbock community and how they help each other, are also what keeps us here. We love Lubbock and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.

Q: What fun things involving Texas Tech do you and your family enjoy doing?

A: We never miss a home football game. Our entire family goes to everyone single one of them, even some bowl games. We also enjoy basketball, we love baseball, and we love all the extracurricular things Tech holds, such as meeting the teams after big wins, theatre performances, and Carol of the Lights.

Q: What does your family do recreationally around town?

A: We are a team roping family so we spend most of our time doing that around town. We also like going to hit golf balls at the Range, going to the movies, and eating out.

Q: Describe Lubbock and Texas Tech in 3 words:

A: Nicest people ever

Q: How does your family feel about all of TTU’s recent sports success?

A: We are still celebrating basketballs achievements! They are amazing. Baseball is on a hot streak as usual, and we even watch at work. We love what Kirby and the coaches are doing for Tech sports. We bleed Red and Black.
