Tarleton State University officially opened the doors of its nursing building to the public Thursday with a grand opening ceremony and ribbon cutting. Tarleton alumnus and surgeon Dr. O.H. "Bud" Frazier delivered the keynote address.

"The profession needs nurses like never before - not just for their practice, but for their compassion and care," Frazier said. "I'm so proud of the contributions Tarleton is making to the care of rural Texans."
