STEPHENVILLE, Texas—U.S. Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Midland, paid a brief visit to Tarleton on Nov. 8. The congressman, who represents the 11th Congressional District, attended the Texan Club luncheon at the Barry B. Thompson Student Center.

His district, 36 counties in West and Central Texas, includes Odessa, Midland and San Angelo.

During his appearance at Tarleton’s Texan Club, the congressmen visited with university administrators, supporters of the athletic programs and student athletes. Conaway also briefly addressed the crowd and wished the Tarleton basketball teams best of luck as they begin their 2011-2012 campaign.

“The loss of individual identity and the importance of being on a team are lessons you learn only in an athletic endeavor,” Conaway said while addressing members of the club and basketball teams. “But I also received an education as a result of participating in athletics. Please take advantage of the education you receive here at Tarleton because it will serve you well long after your athletic career.”

Conaway serves on the House Agriculture, Intelligence, Armed Services, and Ethics Committees. On the Agriculture Committee, he is Subcommittee Chairman of General Farm Commodities and Risk Management.

A native Texan, Conaway grew up in Odessa and later earned a B.B.A. degree in accounting from Texas A&M University-Commerce in 1970.

After serving in the Army at Fort Hood, Conaway resumed his career with Price Waterhouse & Co., settling in Midland where he later worked with George W. Bush as the chief financial officer for Bush Exploration.
