3 faculty named AFS Award recipients

Three faculty in the College of Education and Human Development are honored as 2020 Distinguished Achievement Award recipients from the Association of Former Students, one of the university’s highest professional honors.

Dr. Sharon Matthews, clinical professor in the Department of Teaching, Learning and Culture was given the award for teaching. The award is given to individuals whose “command of their respective discipline, pervasive caring, communications skills and commitment to the learning process.”

Receiving an Association of Former Students Award in Teaching is meaningful to me because it links my more than 30-year passion for teaching, in public schools and as a teacher educator, with my joy in helping craft amazing Aggie teachers,” said Matthews. “For me, there is no greater mission than to be part of a boundless network of selfless educators who impact our world in countless ways.”

Dr. Krystal T. Simmons, clinical associate professor in the Department of Educational Psychology, was given the award for individual student relations. The award recognizes employees whose “professional relationships with students are particularly helpful and inspiring.”

“I learned I received the award on a day where I was busy with a project that consumed many hours and restless nights. The message was timely, uplifting, and a reminder that my work adds value,” said Simmons. “The award reinforces my belief that although I have made an impact through individual student engagement, it is the students who make a greater impact on me. Purposeful engagement is the tradition I will continue to impart on my fellow Aggies.”

Dr. Michael Beyerlein, professor in the Department of Educational Administration and Human Resource Development, was given the award for graduate mentoring. The award recognizes faculty who go beyond advising by “bringing their skills and commitment to students’ learning and professional development as future teachers, practitioners, researchers and scholars through mentoring.”

“This is an absolutely fitting and deserving tribute to Dr. Beyerlein’s tireless dedication to students over many years,” said Dr. Mario Torres, head of EAHR.

Since 1955, the AFS has recognized outstanding members of Texas A&M’s faculty and staff for their commitment, performance and positive impact on Aggie students, Texas citizens and the world around them.

In recognition of their achievement, honorees will receive a cash gift, an engraved watch and a commemorative plaque.
