Stars of Service Awards 2021-2022

Did you miss the Stars of Service award ceremony this year? No worries, we are going to recap the whole event for you! 

The Martin Center Ballroom doors were opened to welcome honorees, their guests and faculty and staff at noon for this year's event. People were warmly greeted by some members of this year’s Stars of Service committee upon entry. Noah O’Con, graduating senior, was playing beautiful music with his guitar and a spread of food was prepared and waiting to be enjoyed on the north end of the ballroom.

It wasn’t long before the buzz of conversations among the people filled the room. Happy honorees and guests waited patiently to get their lunch, provided by our very own Aramark.

The ceremony opened with remarks from President Frederick Slabach, welcoming all to this very special event to celebrate full-time faculty and staff here at Texas Wesleyan who are dedicated to our mission and Smaller. Smarter. vision.
