The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers has awarded three faculty members of the McIntire Department of Music its ASCAPlu$ Standard Awards. The cash awards, made by an independent panel, went to lecturer Edmund Najera, professor Walter B. Ross and assistant professor Alicyn Warren. According to ASCAP, the awards are "based upon the unique prestige value of each writer's catalog of original compositions as well as recent performances of those works in areas not surveyed by the society."
