Starcher Receives Rowan Award

Debbie Starcher, unit coordinator in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, has been named a recipient of the Chancellor's Colonel Rowan Award for Execution as a part of Texas Tech University's Distinguished Staff Awards program. The Rowan award is given to staff members who go above and beyond when accomplishing tasks and projects. This is the third consecutive year that a Whitacre College of Engineering staff member has received a Rowan award.

The Distinguished Staff Awards program is a broad-based recognition effort that rewards staff for hard work, enthusiasm and dedication to Texas Tech. The awards are highly competitive and promote greater individual staff recognition across campus. Recipients were nominated electronically to ensure anonymity. The nominations were completed by other Texas Tech staff members and selected by a committee comprising past award recipients, and the Offices of the Chancellor and President.
