Five Texas A&M AgriLife employees named Regents Professors, Regents Fellows
The board established the Regents Professor Awards program in 1996 and the Regents Fellow Service Awards program in 1998. The awards recognize employees who have made extraordinary contributions to their university or agency, as well as to the people of Texas.
“This designation by the Texas A&M Board of Regents celebrates an elite level of excellence in research and service, a level of excellence that can only be achieved in the Texas A&M System,” said Patrick J. Stover, Ph.D., vice chancellor of Texas A&M AgriLife, dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and director of Texas A&M AgriLife Research. “Their dedication exemplifies Texas A&M AgriLife’s impact in agriculture and health, and we applaud this outstanding recognition.”
Congratulations to one of our own former student and current ALEC Advisory Board member, Ruben Saldana, Ed.D., as one of the recipients of the Regents Fellow Service Award! Dr. Saldana, is the district extension administrator, Texas A&M Agrilife Extension in South District 12, and a former graduate of our joint doctoral program with Texas Tech University.
