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 2018-19 award recipients were recognized at the Division-wide Staff Meeting on Wednesday, January 23, 2019. Honorees received a plaque and $1,500 award from Texas Parents.
