Ralph Rayburn Sportsmanship Award
Ralph Rayburn embodied the spirit of the Sportsmanship Award throughout his life. Texas Sea Grant’s late Associate Director and Extension Program Leader worked tirelessly to help protect our marine resources. Through his work for Texas Sea Grant, the Texas Shrimp Association and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, he dedicated his time and efforts to form collaborations among various groups and individuals who depend on the sustainability of these resources. He made an impact on the lives of the people he came in contact with and was simply a man of great integrity, intelligence and generosity.
Texas Sea Grant is also accepting donations to the Ralph Rayburn Texas Sea Grant Scholarship Fund.
