Richter Awards for Excellence

The Jan and Bud Richter Awards for Excellence recognize Fresno State faculty and staff who have shown tremendous support for the preparation of teachers, counselors and administrators. Over the past 14 years, 44 recipients have been given this honor. Their photos are in the hall of the School of Education building, documenting a legacy of excellence. This special recognition is made possible through the support and generosity of Jan and Bud Richter.
