Texas Tech, Texas635 Basis host golf event in honor of Officer East

Floyd East and family

Texas635 put on its inaugural golf tournament at Rawls Course Friday, with a goal to further the organization that helps families of fallen officers in the West Texas area.

The organization started shortly after Texas Tech Police Officer Floyd East was killed in the line of duty in Oct. of 2017 during an on-campus shooting.

Carmen East started this organization and partnered with Texas Tech, including the Office of the President, to put on this golf tournament at Rawls Course.

The organization also hosts a retreat to help officers dealing with mental health issues. Carmen East said when she started the Texas635 foundation, her first mission was to offer one-time financial support to the families of fallen officers in the form of $635, because of officer East’s badge number.
