Rebeca Trevino, an academic advisor in the School of Nursing, has been selected by the Hispanic Faculty & Staff Association as outstanding staff member of the year for her volunteer service.

Trevino has worked for the association's Holiday Assistance Program for the past 11 years. The program provides a full-course holiday dinner to university employees and their families in need. Trevino initiated the Holiday Assistance Program in 1996. It has grown to serve more than 200 families, with the help of numerous donors from the vice-presidents offices, various student groups, association members and restaurants in the Hispanic community. The Holiday Assistance Program received the 2006 Outstanding Faculty/Staff Organization Award for Community Service.

"Rebeca personifies the concept of leadership and her selection is a testimonial to her contributions to the University of Texas at Austin community," said the association.
