The medical school was the brainchild of two individuals: Eliot Shapleigh and Ray Caballero.

Why aren’t Caballero and Shapleigh honored or recognized?

Francis and Brown don’t deserve the credit they are being given for the medical school. In fact, they represent the faction both in El Paso and Lubbock – those nattering nabobs of negativism - that stood in the way of the medical school.

They said it could not be done. Led by John Montford, they set about erecting every obstacle they could think of to thwart a full-fledged medical school in El Paso. Francis and Brown were Montford’s patsies.

Only after the medical school was an undeniable reality do these yahoos get onboard. Now they seek to rewrite history.

Get your facts straight Kolenc.

Not only did these guys have absolutely no vision about bringing a medical to El Paso, they actively tried to keep the medical school from becoming a reality to protect Lubbock's turf.

Too bad that the medical school is being ran inefficiently and has the worst politics anyone in the medical industry can work in. Management has no idea what they are doing and do not follow standard labor laws. Once the clueless leaders are gone, the Medical School can be a very powerful health facility for El Paso. If the main Lubbock campus only knew how badly they are tarnishing the Texas Tech Health Sciences name brand they would change everything going on. Including getting rid of the De La Rosa and every other direct involved in operations of the campus.
