John J. Koldus III Faculty and Staff Achievement Award Due 5 p.m. on March 5, 2010

Texas A&M University has been built upon a tradition of leadership and
fellowship.  Occasionally, an individual can be found who exemplifies
the meaning of leadership beyond teaching and leading - exhibiting
qualities such as caring, compassion, and motivation.  Dr. John J.
Koldus III, Vice President Emeritus for Student Services, is one of
those exceptional people.  His service to students went beyond the
confines of his responsibilities and has merited him recognition in the
form of a faculty and staff achievement award named in his honor.

The John J. Koldus III Faculty and Staff Achievement Award is given to
an outstanding faculty or staff member for strong interest in student
growth, education, and unity.  The nominee should be an A&M faculty or
staff member who through guidance, leadership, and personal interest,
has gone beyond occupational requirements to enhance students'
experiences at A&M and, subsequently, the rest of their lives.

Students, student organizations, faculty, and staff may nominate an
individual for this award.  The online nomination forms and process,
available at, must be submitted by 5
p.m. on March 5, 2010.  One nomination letter and two letters of
support may be submitted with the nomination form.  The award recipient
will be announced at the May 5th Division of Student Affairs Awards
Ceremony and will receive a plaque and the opportunity to designate a
$2,000 honorarium to a Texas A&M student organization or student

Questions regarding the award or nomination process may be addressed to
