Yesterday, we got a chance to recognize my favorite thing about our College — the people. We celebrated the faculty, staff and student winners of the Dean’s Outstanding Achievement Awards and this year’s winners of The Association of Former Students College-Level Teaching Awards. We also introduced new faculty members and recognized faculty career milestones.
The entire list of award winners and honorees is available at AgriLife Today and photos from the awards are being made available on the AgriLife PhotoShelter.
You’ve heard me say that we’re in the people business, and I love being able to recognize our people’s accomplishments like we did yesterday. Thanks to everyone’s efforts, we are making higher education more relevant. We are creating more opportunity for our faculty, staff and students to influence society in new ways.
Your commitment not only to excellence, but to all the core values of Texas A&M has created a College fueled by connectivity and home to the best and brightest. You make the College a place people can belong to, and I am honored to work alongside each one of you.
Thank you for supporting these awards and one another.
