When 32-year-old Antonio Lara enrolled at Texas Tech University in 2010 as an undergraduate, he was looking for a growth field with opportunities in Texas and around the world.
Lara was one of the first students on board for the university's undergraduate program in wind energy, which officially started this fall.
"I knew it was a growing industry," Lara said. "It feels good to know that you are doing something that offsets the negative effects of the other sources that we get electricity from."
