The Texas Tech Forum Chapter of Mortar Board also received the Gold Torch Award and Project Excellence Award.


The Texas Tech University Forum Chapter of Mortar Board proved, when it comes to service opportunities, its “bark” is just as good as its bite.

Francisco Delgadillo, an associate professor of practice in the Information Systems and Quantitative Sciences Department of the Rawls College of Business at Texas Tech University and senior advisor for the Texas Tech Forum chapter of Mortar Board, was recently awarded the Excellence in Advising Award by the Mortar Board at its national conference in Atlanta.

The Texas Tech Forum chapter also received the Gold Torch Award for “operations and performance that is significantly higher than the basic expectations,” according to the national Mortar Board. The Forum chapter also was given the Project Excellence Award for its work with Bark in the Park, which promoted the Mortar Board and the campus community as well as its work with the athletic department.

“Our university Mortar Board members came up with exceptional ideas and worked extremely hard all year, so Texas Tech could compete and win at the national level,” Delgadillo said. “Therefore, Forum Chapter members, advisors, and alumni are proud to bring back to Texas Tech three very important national awards.”
