Gary & Pat Rodgers Distinguished Faculty, Staff and Administrator Awards

The Gary and Pat Rodgers Distinguished Faculty, Staff and Administrator Awards were created by San Angelo native and former Angelo State student Gary Rodgers and his wife, Pat. Because of their association with numerous ASU employees over the years, the couple wanted to recognize the role that faculty, staff and administrators play in helping ASU fulfill its mission to prepare students to be responsible and productive citizens.

The Rodgers established the awards in 2011 and provide an honorarium to each recipient.
