Distinguished Achievement (University)

Since 1955, The Association of Former Students has recognized outstanding members of Texas A&M’s faculty and staff for their commitment, performance and positive impact on Aggie students, Texas citizens and the world around them.

Each honoree receives an award plaque, an engraved watch and a cash gift, all furnished by The Association of Former Students. Donors to The Association of Former Students provide funding for this program.

The selection process for this award is rigorous, with the recipients chosen by a campus-wide committee composed of faculty, staff, students, and former students. The award is a testimony to the esteem in which colleagues hold the recipients.
