University of Tulsa Recognizes Distinguished Alumni During 2021 Homecoming Activities
Introduced in 1972, The University of Tulsa Alumni Association annually presents accomplished alumni with the association’s highest honor: The Distinguished Alumni Award.
This award is given to recognize outstanding achievement by an alumnus or alumna in a particular discipline, organization or cause. Distinguished Alumni are a great credit to TU and all alumni share in the celebration of their collective achievements.
Recognition is open to any alumnus or alumna of The University of Tulsa who has distinguished himself or herself by rendering extraordinary service and achievement to a particular discipline, organization, or cause on an international, national, statewide, or local basis.
This year, TU Alumni Association honored alumni are Stuart R. Crum (BS ‘82), CEO of True Blue Car Wash and former executive at Texaco, Shell, Jiffy Lube and Bridgestone; John Harvey III (BA ‘85), plant manager at TPC Group Houston and former executive at British Petroleum, Amoco, Ineos and Elevance; and Albert H.

Other honorees at TU’s 2021 Homecoming were J. Paschal Twyman Award winner Steve Turnbo, a co-founder of Schnake Turnbo Frank PR, and Ms. Homecoming M. Teresa Valero, former director of the TU School of Art.
The honorees were feted during an induction ceremony at TU’s Lorton Performance Center. University President Brad R. Carson congratulated the honorees on their lifetimes of success and thanked each of them for their continued support of TU and its students.
All five honorees attended the annual Bonfire and Pep Rally on Oct. 8 and were recognized during the victorious TU Homecoming game against Memphis at H.A. Chapman Stadium.
