Congratulations Texas State Quarterly Team Award Winners

October 16, 2020

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

Texas State University employees stepped up, worked hard across both campuses, and made a difference for each other and students this quarter. Nominations for 20 deserving teams reflected the unprecedented work accomplished to prepare Texas State for a safe and successful fall return in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

For the second time in 25 years, we are recognizing two teams for the Texas State Quarterly Team Recognition Award.  Each team will be honored as determined by their respective division vice president, and each team member will receive administrative leave to take a day off (coordinated with immediate supervisor) and a certificate of appreciation.  


Multi-departmental Bobcat Cares Team

This team came together to award $36.4 million in emergency grant funds to more than 20,000 students who experienced unexpected financial difficulties due to the COVID-19 disruption of campus operations. The funds supported students in completing the spring 2020 semester and ultimately persisting with their education in the summer and fall semesters.

Student Health Center Team

As we have seen with medical professionals around the country in recent months, the clinical and administrative staff at the Student Health Center has gone above and beyond with COVID-19 testing.  They have also gone the extra mile by supporting our community in unprecedented ways while ensuring quality care for all.


Because there were so many worthy teams nominated this quarter, the Staff Employee and Team Recognition Selection Committee is recognizing an additional eight teams for an Honorable Mention Award.  The members of these teams will receive a certificate of appreciation.

  • Commencement Team
  • Core Systems Team
  • COVID-19 Public Health Awareness Signage Team
  • Distance and Extended Learning Team
  • Learning Spaces Team
  • Network Operations Team
  • University Advancement Communications Team
  • University Registrar Schedule of Classes Team
