Robins Awards are the most coveted of all Utah State honors, and the awards night is the year’s most prestigious event.The awards memorialize William E. Robins, a campus hero who had a rare quality to turn his vision into Utah State’s vision. Robins was a Sigma Nu at Utah State who served as USU’s student body president in 1949. He was also the primary and initial visionary of today’s Taggart Student Center. In 1954, Bill and his wife Geraldine died in a plane crash, leaving behind a one-year old orphan boy Nick. This prompted Bill’s fraternity to set up the Bill E. Robins Memorial fund to raise money that would provide a scholarship for the boy’s education when he was old enough to enroll in the University. Tragically, Nick died at the age of eight from leukemia. Since then USU has continued the Robins Award tradition. Now we honor this families memory and impact at USU through the Robins Awards.
