On Monday, April 29, 2013, Mr. Robert Jasso was honored by the 75th Congress of the Student Government Association with the John T. Bragg, Sr. Distinguished Service award. The purpose of this award is to recognize a Middle Tennessee State University faculty or staff member who has made a significant contribution in service to MTSU. The recipient of this award has $1,000 in books donated in their name to the James E. Walker library.
Those who nominated Mr. Jasso spoke very highly of his hands on classroom approach, his vast knowledge and background in the business, and both his advising and mentoring relationships with all of his students. On the first day of class, Jasso says that “his office has a couch if you’re tired, a Zen garden if you’re stressed, and a tissue if you need to cry about something,” and that open-door policy is one of the many reasons Jasso is so loved by all his students.
