President's Excellence in Academic Advising Award goes to AAEC's Elam
Texas Tech University presented awards to six faculty, staff and students for President's Excellence in Diversity & Equity, and six faculty and staff for President's Excellence in Academic Advising today (May 6). Among the award winners was Emmett Elam of Tech's Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics, who received recognition for academic advising.
"I truly appreciate your commitment to the university mission and playing an important role in Texas Tech reaching new heights of excellence," said President Duane Nellis of the recipients.
The Academic Advising awards recognize outstanding academic advising achievements. Nine individuals and groups were nominated for the individual and team awards this year. Since 1999, Elam has served as undergraduate coordinator for the agricultural and applied economics department.
Prior to joining the Texas Tech faculty in 1987 as an associate professor, Elam served as an assistant professor at the University of Arkansas. Before that he worked as a Research Associate at the University of Illinois. Elam received his bachelor's degree in economics and his master's degree in statistics from the University of Memphis. His doctorate in agricultural economics is from the University of Illinois.
In the past Elam's research has focused on price analysis, marketing, futures markets and price risk management, value-added processing, cotton variety selection, and economics of livestock production and marketing.
