The UT MPPA Fellow in Professional Practice honor recognizes the contributions of professionals to the advanced education and training of MPPA students.

Municipal management consultant Margaret Norris and MTAS finance and accounting consultants Ralph Cross, Brad Harris, and Al Major received the honor at the MPPA hooding and awards ceremony in May.

In honoring each, the faculty made the following statement:

“The UT MPPA faculty appreciate Ralph, Brad, Al, and Margaret as highly skilled communicators and accomplished professionals whose careers exhibit the highest standards of performance excellence and ethical conduct. For many years, they have graciously and generously shared their expertise, insight, and wisdom with our students in multiple evening seminars after clocking a full day of work and travel in the state. They are outstanding professional role models for our students. The MPPA faculty want you to know that we are very grateful for all they have done and continue to do to help train and develop the next generation of public servants.”
