UHV President Bob Glenn and Jesse Pisors, UHV vice president for advancement & external relations, discuss on Monday the four new plaques and names added to the UHV Donor Recognition Display in University North, 3007 N.

Also added to the wall was a donor feature highlighting UHV alumna Josie Rivera and information about her. In addition, updates were made to the display’s Cornerstone Circle with the names of those who donated $1,000 or more during 2017-2018, as well as a section dedicated to faculty and staff donations made to UHV during the 2018 fiscal year.
