J. Paschal Twyman Award


About the J. Paschal Twyman Award

The J. Paschal Twyman award was established by the TU Alumni Association after the late president’s death to honor any TU alumnus/a, student, faculty or staff member, or friend of the university for outstanding contributions to the university, “far and beyond the call of duty.” The honoree should possess some of the qualities Twyman admired, including leadership and commitment.
