The Distinguished Honor Graduate Award is a university-level award and is open to graduate students from all colleges and academic units at Texas A&M. In order to be considered for the award, the nominee’s teaching is evaluated by the faculty members of the nominating department, peers of the nominee and the nominee's students. 

“Meredith’s outstanding academic record and contributions in research have been recognized and acknowledged by a distinguished committee of reviewers,” said Dr. Karen Butler Purry, associate provost for graduate and professional studies. “Thanks to the support we receive from The Association of Former Students for these awards, we are able to recognize these students, who are among the best and brightest in their fields.”

Luttrell will be honored at an awards ceremony on April 28th, 2014 in the MSC Stark Gallery, where she will be presented a framed certificate and custom gold watch from The Association of Former Students.
