Staff Merit Award Winners

2020-21 Staff Merit Award recipients Samantha Martinez de Alonso, Kyle St. Nicholas and David Vander Straten

Texas Parents established the Staff Merit Award in 1998 to recognize employees in any department or position in the Division of Student Affairs who contribute every day to a culture of excellence. The award recognizes employees who support student success, strengthen services provided by the Division and inspire fellow staff to make a habit of seeking excellence in their own work. A list of past recipients can be found below.

Nominees must be full-time employees who have worked in the Division of Student Affairs for at least three consecutive years.

The 2020-21 award recipients were recognized at the Division-wide Staff Meeting on Wednesday, January 27, 2021. Honorees received a plaque and $1,500 award from Texas Parents.
