Drs. Carr and Safe receive 2020 Distinguished Achievement Award

August 6, 2020

For 65 years, Texas A&M University and The Association of Former Students have recognized the most deserving faculty and staff members with one of the university’s highest professional honors—the University-Level Distinguished Achievement Awards. This year’s recipients were chosen for their stellar performances in teaching, research, student relations, continuing education, staff service and graduate student mentoring. Since the award’s inception in 1955, it has been presented to 1,122 professionals (including this year’s recipients) who have exhibited the highest standards of excellence at Texas A&M. In recognition of their achievements, honorees will receive a cash gift, an engraved watch and a commemorative plaque. The 2020 Distinguished Achievement Awards ceremony planned for Rudder Theatre on the Texas A&M University campus was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Through the generous support of former students and friends of Texas A&M, The Association of Former Students is able to support A&M faculty and staff through programs like the Distinguished Achievement Awards. The Distinguished Achievement Award is an award of excellence, and each of the 24 recipients is more than worthy of the distinction.

Congratulations to Dr. Chave Carr and Dr. Stephen Safe for receiving this distinguished award! Dr. Carr was presented the award for teaching and Dr. Safe for graduate student mentoring.
