SERVICE AWARDS

Jack Harbin Top Hand Award 

Recognizing individuals who have given extraordinary service to the Texas Exes and the university.

The Top Hand Award recognizes an individual who has given extraordinary service to the Texas Exes and The University of Texas. Shrouded in secrecy, the Top Hand Award recipient is unaware of the honor until the time of presentation. Each recipient is selected and awarded personally by the president of the Texas Exes. Their servant’s heart and passion for UT Austin makes all the difference for the association and the university.
