The Ted Booker Memorial Award
In 1971, Ted Booker, who had been President in 1969-1970 and was Dean of the College of Education at Texas Woman's University, suggested that TSCTE (predecessor of TxATE) use surplus funds to establish an award for an outstanding contribution in the field of teacher education. Because of his leadership in this area and his untimely death in 1971 due to a heart attack, the Ted Booker Memorial Award was established in April, 1972 at the TSCTE Spring Conference.
The first award was presented to Lloyd Rogers in 1973.

Special consideration will be given to members of TxATE; however, nonmembers may be selected.
