From 326 anonymous nominations, SGA and a team of student volunteers selected the most outstanding professor in each school or college.

The list of winners, and comments from students’ nominations, are as follows:

Dr. Curby Alexander—College of Education

“Dr. Alexander goes above and beyond any professor I have ever seen. I was blown away by his passion and that he knows my name in a class of 100 students. I learn from him, and he makes me excited to be an educator one day.”

Dr. Brenda Reed—Harris College of Nursing & Health Sciences and a doctoral counseling & counselor education student

“Dr. Reed was my clinical instructor last semester. I feel like I grew the most as a student when she was my instructor in the hospital. She is an incredible teacher and does everything possible to make her students better nurses. I had an accident this semester with my wrist, and she was the person I [called]. She is continually there for me even though she is not my teacher this semester. She’s an outstanding person and probably the sweetest teacher I’ve ever had. She always builds her students up and talks to us like we are equals. She has by far been my favorite instructor in the three years I’ve been a student at TCU. I cannot think of anyone more deserving of this award.”
