Every year, the College of Liberal Arts Superior Service (CLASS) Awards Program recognizes individuals who provide outstanding service to the college and demonstrate leadership, ingenuity, job excellence, and support for diversity.
On December 7, 2018 at the college’s Staff Appreciation Luncheon, the Economics Department Manager, Kurt Felpel, was one of three individuals awarded the 2018 CLASS Award.
Kurt joined Texas A&M just over three years ago after 23 years of service in U.S. Army. Felpel is glad to be chosen as a CLASS recipient but feels that he is simply doing his job. Whether it is meeting with prospective high school students, managing the department web page, supervising staff, or handling data requests, Felpel does a little bit of everything. “I feel like I am involved in just about everything that this department does,” Felpel said. “It’s a very satisfying feeling when a student tells me that they received an internship or job offer at an event that I organized.”
