The Texas Tech Alumni Association created the Top Techsan Staff Award in 1973.
Only full-time, non-faculty employees are eligible for
consideration. They must have two or more years of service with the
university as of May the year a nomination is submitted. Nominations
are accepted from current faculty, staff or students. Although not a
requirement, recipients of previous campus awards are eligible.
Selections are made based on completed nomination forms that
emphasize extraordinary work proficiency and an attitude of team spirit
within the Texas Tech family.
Recognized as individuals who exemplify team spirit and extraordinary work proficiency, four individuals are honored each year during Homecoming festivities at the Texas Tech Alumni Association's Top Techsan Luncheon. Each winner is nominated by fellow Texas Tech faculty, students or staff, and selections are made based on nominations of individuals, emphasizing work ethic and attitude within the Texas Tech family.
