Homecoming Gala

The UT Alumni Association's annual Homecoming Gala is a chance for us to thank and honor our alumni who make an impact every day in communities across the country and the world. This year, the Gala was on Friday, Oct. 5, in the Lancelot Thompson Student Union Auditorium.

Each year we honor 15 outstanding graduates. We presented the Gold T, Blue T and Edward H. Schmidt Outstanding Young Alum awards, as well as honored distinguished graduates from each of UT's 12 colleges.

The Gold T is awarded to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to his or her field of endeavor and has been of service to the University, community or nation. The Blue T is awarded in recognition of an individual's outstanding service to the UT Alumni Association and the University through committee and community involvement.

In memory of Edward H. Schmidt, the Outstanding Young Alum Award is presented to an alum under the age of 40 in recognition of outstanding achievement in his or her field of endeavor.

A list of past Gold T, Blue T and Edward H. Schmidt Outstanding Young Alum award recipients is available below.
