The Lynne Milburn Award
The Lynne Milburn Award is an award given annually by the PEFSA Executive Committee to honor those who have made positive contributions not only to PEFSA but to the UT Austin community as well.
Lynne Milburn is one of the founding members of PEFSA and was a true agent of change on UT’s campus. To honor her hard work and her legacy, the PEFSA Executive Committee named this award upon her retirement from UT Austin in 2008. Recipients of this award are believed to embody the spirit and hope that Lynne Milburn possesses as well as the dedication she so nobly demonstrated during her time on the PEFSA Executive Committee. Past award winners are listed below.
2017 Lynne Milburn Award Winner: Beth Chichester
Beth first came to UT in 1988. She double majored in Greek and English and graduated with special honors. Beth has worked for the Department of Classics for the last 18 years, currently as the Graduate Program Coordinator. She joined the Executive Committee for PEFSA in 2008 and loves being a part of this wonderful community. Beth enjoys obscure historical facts, dancing, and talking about her three kids.
Fun fact: Beth tried out for cheerleader in high school. Let’s just say the vote was rigged.
