Nominate a teacher before the deadline at 5 p.m. on July 18!
Texas A&M University has established the "Inspiration Award for Exceptional Secondary Education" to honor Texas high school teachers who made a significant impact on Texas A&M graduating seniors while they were in high school. Each graduate may nominate one high school teacher who challenged him/her to excel at the collegiate level and beyond. A committee is appointed by the Student Body President to review the nominees and make the selection. The teacher selected for the Texas A&M Inspiration Award for Exceptional Secondary Education receives a check in the amount of $2,000, a certificate and an all-expense paid trip to campus. The high school where the teacher taught the nominating student receives a check in the amount of $1,000. Two recipients are honored at the May Commencement, one at the August ceremonies and one at the December commencement. (Note: A minimum of 10 nominations must be received for this award to be presented at August commencement.) Nominations are accepted from undergraduate and graduate students who are graduating at these ceremonies. The recipient of the award is recognized at the ceremony in which the nominating student is graduating.
If you expect to graduate this semester, we ask that you use this opportunity to nominate a teacher who made a significant impact on your life while you were in high school. A teacher is only eligible if he/she taught you in high school in the State of Texas. Previous recipients are not eligible for this award. A list of previous winners can be found at the SGA Inspiration Award website.
