Massey Award

John H. Massey, LLB ’66, Life Member, Distinguished Alumnus, created this award in 2003 to honor his wife Elizabeth Anne Shatto Massey, BS ’61, Life Member, Distinguished Alumna, for her lifelong dedication to teachers, teaching, and public education. The award’s purpose is to recognize one UT Austin faculty member who is a “teacher of teachers”—someone who is preparing today’s students to become tomorrow’s elementary or secondary education teachers. Nominations for the award are solicited every other year from the deans of UT’s teacher preparation programs in the colleges of education, fine arts, liberal arts, and natural sciences.
