ASU's Alexander Appointed Examiner for 2003 Texas Performance Excellence Award
Dr. David Alexander, professor of management at Angelo State University, has been appointed to the 2003 Texas Award for Performance Excellence Board of Examiners.
Administered by Quality Texas Foundation, the Texas Award is offered annually to organizations within the state that demonstrate the highest levels of performance excellence.
As an examiner, Alexander is responsible for reviewing and evaluating applications submitted for the prestigious award. Alexander has been an ASU faculty member since 1988.
The Board of Examiners is comprised of leading performance excellence experts selected from all sectors of expertise. All examiners must complete a rigorous, three-day training course to prepare them to assess and provide feedback to applicants.
Based on the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the Texas Award for Performance Excellence provides a state-level award process and offers feedback and recognition to manufacturing, service, small business, education, health care and public sector organizations.
The Texas Award recently completed its ninth award cycle. In May the Bill J. Priest Institute for Economic Development, part of the Dallas County Community College District, was named recipient of the 2002 Texas Award for Performance Excellence in the education sector.
Information on the Texas Award for Performance Excellence is available from the Quality Texas Foundation, 3008 Dawn Drive, Suite 106, Georgetown, Texas 78628, or its Web site at www.texas-quality.org.
