Residents invited to participate in UT rural survey

Edgar's picture

Perryton has been selected as one of 83 small and remote Texas communities, including three in Louisiana, to be part of economic recovery research being undertaken by the IC2 Institute at The University of Texas at Austin. The institute is currently researching the economic effects of the COVID-19 crisis that coupled with a historic drop in oil prices that shook not only the Permian Basin in West Texas but sent shockwaves through the Panhandle and the rest of the state.

The institute is requesting Perryton residents to complete their survey to help illuminate the challenges our community is facing, and identify strong points that can point toward recovery and growth. There is a link to the survey on the right sidebar of the Perryton Herald website at www.

The community that receives the highest percent of survey responses will receive a $1,000 donation for their school district. Perryton is one of only four Panhandle-area towns to participate, including Spearman, Fritch, and Childress.
