“This Regents’ Staff Excellence Award is a high honor. One employee is selected from the entire Texas State University System to be honored with this career-milestone achievement. We couldn’t be more thrilled for Becky to receive this award and we couldn’t be more in agreement of how deserving she is of this recognition,” said LSCO President Dr. Tom Johnson.

She is a valued colleague who has devoted her entire career to Lamar State College Orange, changing the lives of students, staff, and faculty in the process.
