Earline Bragg Award

In 2006, students from the Department of Theatre Arts looked for a way to honor long-time administrative assistant Earline Bragg for her tireless work on their behalf. Students noticed that Earline went above and beyond – supporting students in need in ways both large and small. That year, Earline became the first honoree for the now annual “Earline Bragg Award” as a way to celebrate her genuine and generous heart toward the students of the Department of Theatre Arts and Dance. Now, each year a student, staff, or faculty member who best represents the same good, kind, empathetic, and helpful spirit is chosen, through secret ballot, by the entire department to carry on the legacy of Earline Bragg. The annual Earline Bragg Award represents the best of the Maverick Theatre Company and Maverick Dance Company and endorses a commitment to outstanding service, dedication, and loyalty to the UTA Department of Theatre Arts and Dance.
