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.
