Category: News

The Volunteer 40 Under 40 program grew again this year with members of the 2023 cohort being inducted in a ceremony on campus February 3. These accomplished Volunteers join 80 others in holding the distinction. The group includes professional and Olympic athletics; service to government and the military; work in research science, technology, and medicine; and more. They were chosen for the distinction based on great accomplishments and have given back to the university through leadership, services, and gifts.

“Today marks the celebration of our third class of the Volunteer 40 Under 40 awards,” said Duane Wiles, associate vice chancellor for alumni relations. “The members of this extraordinary class are lighting the way for future classes to come. Each award winner has made significant contributions in their fields, communities, and to society. Their work and commitment embody what it means to be a Volunteer. Their spirit and loyalty to UT are what we strive to foster in all students.”

Members of this year’s cohort come from a range of organizations including META, the White House, Johns Hopkins, the Boeing Company, Whataburger, and the NCAA, among others.

The Volunteer 40 Under 40 was established in 2021 along with a scholarship endowment to help future generations of students thrive. Applications for the 2024 cohort will open in spring 2023.
