Two Texas Tech faculty members were awarded the Heart of Financial Planning honors by the Financial Planning Association, a distinction given to four people per year.

Harold Evensky, an instructor, and Deena Katz, an associate professor, were recognized for giving back to the public through financial planning, according to a news release.

The award, according to the release, is given to professionals, FPA chapters and financial planning firms.

Evensky and Katz, who have been married for more than 20 years, participate on committees and board with the FPA, according to the release.

“The Heart of Financial Planning Award is an award given out sparingly, so I am honored to receive it,” Katz said in the release. “It certainly makes me feel very proud to be a part of the financial planning community.”
