Dear Graduate School Community,

We are pleased to announce that we are beginning to accept nominations for The Deborah Canales Yrle Distinguished Service Award. The purpose of this award is to recognize individuals who provide outstanding support to the education and research mission of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and its’ programs.

Debbie Canales Yrle passed away unexpectedly in 2006. Debbie was not only Administrative Assistant to Dr. Bettie Sue Masters, but her friend and confidante. She went above and beyond what was expected of her in all of her duties. Debbie stayed late in the evenings if necessary, took on new projects with enthusiasm and always made herself available to anyone who needed her assistance. The award honors Debbie and our hardworking, dedicated staff members that help us every day.

This award is made possible through The Debbie Yrle Memorial Endowment, which was established in memory of Debbie Yrle by Dr. Masters, along with support from friends, family, and colleagues. The award recipient will receive a Certificate of Recognition and a $500 check during a private reception in December. They will also have their name added to the Debbie Canales Yrle Distinguished Service Award recipient plaque in the Graduate Dean’s Office.

The award information including, criteria and eligibility requirements, is attached, along with a nomination form. You can also find this information online at

All nomination forms should be sent electronically to Janice Smith at by Friday, October 21 at 5:00 p.m. You may also contact Mrs. Smith with any questions about the award or nomination process.
