UHV students show support for Domestic Violence Awareness

University of Houston-Victoria student Angel Davila of Brownsville paints a T-shirt during the Operation Clothesline Project event Tuesday at UHV University Commons. The UHV Counseling Center invited students to paint positive messages on donated T-shirts in observance of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The T-shirts will be displayed in UHV University Commons for the month of October and will later be donated to Mid-Coast Family Services.

The University of Houston-Victoria, located in the heart of the Coastal Bend region since 1973 in Victoria, Texas, offers courses leading to more than 80 academic programs in the schools of Arts & Sciences; Business Administration; and Education, Health Professions & Human Development.
