The Texas A&M University System established the Regents Fellow Service Awards program in 1998 to recognize faculty and employees who have made extraordinary contributions to their university, or agency, as well as to the people of Texas. Jay Hall, Assistant Chief, for the Texas Division of Emergency Managment was one of the recipients of this year’s award.
The selection process for the awards begins with a call for nominations from the chancellor. Final nominations are put forth to the chief executive officer of each respective entity. They are then subject to a system-level review consisting of academic vice chancellors and past recipients of the awards. Finally, nominations are forwarded to the chancellor and the board for final approval.
