With so many students from the college displaying their growth not only as students but as people of the community, Dean Lance Nail expressed the pride that both he and the Rawls receive from knowing how students are impacting the world for the better.

"The Rawls College is very proud of our Who's Who award recipients.  Their recognition for their contributions as campus leaders is not only a recognition of their individual achievements, but is also a collective recognition of the Rawls College culture," Nail said. "Our Who's Who students exemplify this culture and represent the best of the Rawls College.  And the large number of awardees demonstrates the support of the faculty and staff who view their students' success as their own."

The students who received the award were also proud of their accomplishments and attributed their success to the lessons they learned through the coursework and involvement with the Rawls.

"It's an honor to be chosen by a panel at the Rawls to be recognized as someone who's done great things on campus. I've had amazing people guide me on how to become involved, and I've had lots of leaders within the Rawls pointing me in the right direction" - BaLeigh Waldrop

"I think it's an honor to represent Texas Tech and be a part of the Who's Who. I think its great to put the College of Business in the spotlight and to be chosen to be one of the people to represent the college" - Broc Dyson
