da honorees

The growth and stature of the UT PGE Department is largely due to dedicated, passionate alumni who go on to change the oil and gas industry with their leadership and innovation. 

Thanks to our supporters, almost 200 people filled the Four Seasons Hotel ballroom on Friday, Nov. 11 during the 2016 Distinguished Alumni (DA) Ceremony. The program honored six alumni for their significant contributions to energy production, the Texas economy and higher education. UT PGE graduate and DA Committee Chair Russell Parker (BS PE '00), who is a 2010 DA honoree, served as the emcee for the evening.

As some of the industry's leading entrepreneurs, engineers and noteworthy executives, the 2016 honorees have a broad range of experience and talent.
