Professor Ferreira-Buckley has been named a recipient of The Eyes of Texas Excellence Award for the Spring 2011 semester. The Eyes of Texas is an anonymous campus organization that seeks to recognize contributions to student life at The University of Texas. The award is given to ten deserving faculty, administration, and staff members each semester.

In an anonymous letter, the student organization writes, "Dr. Ferreira-Buckley, your many years of love for the university, both inside and outside of the classroom, are certainly worth recognition. Your students rave about your enthusiam in the subject you teach, optimistic attitude, and personal investment in the work of your students. You have not only shaped your students into better writers, but you have also left them with countless life lessons that they continue to carry with them after your class. Aside from teaching, your contributions as department chair, on various university committees, and as a representative of UT at conferences nationwide have truly had a lasting effect on the 40 Acres. For all of this, the entire Longhorn comunity is grateful for you."

Congratulations, Professor Ferreira-Buckley!
