After 35 years of service to our department, Burt English has retired. On April 18, the department held a retirement reception for English to wish him all the best in his well-earned retirement.
In 2019, the UT Institute of Agriculture honored him with the designation of Institute Professor, the highest faculty honor bestowed. Other awards include the UT Chancellor’s Award for Research; the UT AgResearch Impact Award; the UTIA Research Team Award; and the Success in Multidisciplinary Research Award, to name a few. English is a biofuels pioneer and beloved professor and mentor to countless students.
Congratulations, Dr. English!
