Senator Hutchison to Speak at Texas Tech School of Law May Hooding Ceremony

Texas Tech University School of Law has announced that United States Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) will be the speaker at the May 2011 Hooding Ceremony.

The ceremony will be held at 6 p.m. May 14 at the United Spirit Arena, located at 1701 Indiana Ave. in Lubbock.

Hutchison was elected to the United States Senate in 1993 in a special election, making her the first – and, to date, the only – woman elected to represent Texas in the Senate. One year later she was re-elected to a full six-year term. In 2000, she received more votes for her re-election to a second full term than any other statewide candidate had ever received. In 2006, she was again re-elected by an overwhelming margin.

The senator lives in Dallas with her husband, Ray, and their two children, Bailey and Houston.
