Nominations for the 2018-19 Mike Wacker Award are now closed.
Texas Parents established the Mike Wacker Award in 1985 to honor former Longhorn basketball player, Mike Wacker, who through personal courage and sacrifice, returned to competition after a serious knee injury. The award has been a symbol of courage and perseverance in the face of adversity. This award is not necessarily given each year; but when bestowed, the recipient receives a plaque and is recognized at the Texas Parents Ambassadors Council luncheon.
Texas Parents serves all students’ families who need assistance navigating university resources. All parents and families of enrolled undergraduate students are members of the Texas Parents Association, the university’s official association of parents and families. Membership provides benefits to support and promote student success from enrollment through graduation.
