Elwood Preiss Distinguished Retiree Service Award
At a special executive officers meeting held in August 2007, a proposal was made for the development and formation of an award that would recognize UT Arlington Retirees who have made significant and valuable contributions to the university and the Arlington community. The inaugural reward would be named the "UT Arlington Distinguished Retiree Service Award", with subsequent awards to be named "Elwood Preiss Distinguished Retiree Service Award".
