(May 12, 2006)--Lunelle Anderson, chairwoman of the development board for UTSA's Institute of Texan Cultures (ITC), recently received a distinguished service award from Sam Houston State University (SHSU) in Huntsville.
Anderson, who earned a master's degree from SHSU, was one of six recipients selected for this year's award. According to the SHSU Office of Alumni Relations, the alumni association honored recipients for personifying the university's motto, "The Measure of a Life is its Service."

Anderson also has served ITC as the chairwoman of a 13-member development board. She was named to that leadership post in December 2004.
Since she became chairwoman, Anderson has provided gracious, steadfast leadership during a time of change and growth for UTSA's ITC, said Juli Favor, ITC associate executive director of advancement.
"Lunelle is the quintessential chairwoman, always championing ITC," Favor said. "Her commitment to community service and volunteerism sets a fine example."
Before joining the development board at ITC, Anderson was involved with the Preservation Texas Alliance and the Texas Historical Commission. She also has earned honors from the Board of Regents of the Texas State University System for four decades of teaching and university administrative service.
UTSA's Institute of Texan Cultures is one of the university's three campuses. Each year the museum attracts more than 70,000 schoolchildren and another 200,000 visitors to view its permanent and special exhibits on Texas history, culture, science and technology.
