Volunteers at Lubbock ISD campuses represent many community organizations and businesses, including Texas Tech University, Lubbock Police Department, Lubbock Fire Rescue, Lubbock County Criminal District Attorney’s Office, Covenant Health System, YWCA of Lubbock, Amerigroup, banks, United Way agencies, and many more. Members of the Lubbock ISD Board of Trustees and numerous employees are also serving as volunteers.
