Letter from the executive director Dear Alumni Association Member: Thanks to members like you, we had arguably the best year in our 87-year history! In fact, we added almost 5,000 members and $435,000 in contributions, surpassing $2 million in giving for a single year for the first time. Your support allowed us to invest in our digital infrastructure to improve our stewardship of your contributions by relying more on digital communication efforts, cutting down on waste and printing expenses. Your contributions provided critical funding for key initiatives for scholarships and academic support allowing us to: > raise more than $500,000 which resulted in a $1 million investment to the TTAA Scholarship Endowment through a scholarship matching program. > assist 405 deserving Texas Tech students with $263,760 in scholarships. > award $10,000 through our inaugural Excellence Grant to San Antonio TechTeach, a fast-track teacher education program in the College of Education. Beginning with the December class of 2013, all graduates will receive a special graduation gift: a one-year TTAA membership. Thanks to a new partnership with our new university president, M. Duane Nellis, Ph.D., all graduates automatically receive a full one-year membership. I believe this partnership will bolster the connection between these new Red Raiders and their alma mater. We added programming that enhances the value of each membership, you save money on everyday purchases and support the alumni association at the same time. We: > finalized an agreement with Discover Card as the new official Texas Tech credit card. > launched an energy services partnership with Everything Energy; members in deregulated markets can lower their electricity rates. It was a banner year for the Texas Tech Alumni Association. We couldn’t have done it without your support. Thank you.
GO TECH! Bill Dean, Ed.D.

Distinguished Alumni Awards Since 1967, the Texas Tech Alumni Association has been presenting awards to the most prestigious graduates of Texas Tech University for their professional achievements, contributions to society and support of the university. It is the highest honor bestowed by the Alumni Association and the University. Past recipients have governed states, flown space missions, sung leading roles in the great opera houses of the world, served as CEOs and military commanders, won Olympic Gold Medals, and even performed heart surgery on celebrities such as Larry King and David Letterman. The 2013 recipients were honored at the Distinguished Alumni Dinner in March 2013, where more than 300 family and friends paid tribute to their remarkable accomplishments.

Lauro F. Cavazos Award The Lauro F. Cavazos Award is presented to individuals who have made a positive impact on the university through outstanding accomplishments, acts of service and/or financial support.
BERNHARD T. MITTEMEYER, M.D.
The award was created in 1987 in honor of Lauro F. Cavazos, Ph.D., a sixthgeneration Texan who served as the 10th president of the university. He was the first Texas Tech alumnus and first Hispanic to achieve that distinction.
Bernhard T. Mittemeyer, M.D., Executive Vice President, Provost & Professor Emeritus, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, Lt. General, U.S. Army (Ret) was chosen as the 2013 recipient of the Cavazos Award.
Distinguished Service Award The Distinguished Service Award, first presented to Dean Lewis N. Jones in 1977, was created to recognize and commend outstanding service rendered to the Texas Tech Alumni Association and Texas Tech University.
ALLEN T. MCINNES, PH.D. Allen T. McInnes, Ph.D., Dean Emeritus, Jerry S. Rawls College of Business Administration, Texas Tech University was chosen as the 2013 recipient of the Distinguished Service Award.
New Faculty Awards One of the most important things we do at the Texas Tech Alumni Association is use membership funds to help meet academic needs throughout Texas Tech University. In order to assist Texas Tech in attracting and retaining world class faculty, the Alumni Association established the New Faculty Awards program in 1987 to recognize outstanding new members of the faculty in each college and the School of Law. The dean of each of these academic units designates the recipient of the award, which carries with it a certificate and an honorarium of $500 funded by the Texas Tech Alumni Association. The awards are presented to faculty who have four years, or fewer, of service at any university and who have earned distinction for dedicated service to Texas Tech. In 2013, 10 faculty members received the recognition along with a $500 award.
