Unsung Heroes Video: Hear from some of the people who help make UTRGV run

2017 UTRGV's Unsung Heroes

RIO GRANDE VALLEY, TEXAS – NOV. 13, 2017 – For the past five weeks, The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley has presented the Unsung Heroes Series, five profiles of some of the people who help make a vast enterprise like UTRGV run smoothly.

These are our Unsung Heroes, people who despite their importance and contributions too often go unnoticed. They work each day behind the scenes, away from spotlights and accolades, but still knowing they have a job to do that supports the university community with their hard work and expertise.

Today, starting Week 6 of the series, we revisit the Unsung Heroes with a video presentation by the same team of News and Internal Communications workers who created this series: student photographer Veronica Gaona, and student writer Steven Masso.

Click on the video link below to hear what the Unsung Heroes have to say, and to hear from Gaona and Masso about what the experience of meeting these people has meant to them.

The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) was created by the Texas Legislature in 2013 as the first major public university of the 21st century in Texas. This transformative initiative provided the opportunity to expand educational opportunities in the Rio Grande Valley, including a new School of Medicine, and made it possible for residents of the region to benefit from the Permanent University Fund – a public endowment contributing support to the University of Texas System and other institutions.

UTRGV has campuses and off-campus research and teaching sites throughout the Rio Grande Valley including in Boca Chica Beach, Brownsville (formerly The University of Texas at Brownsville campus), Edinburg (formerly The University of Texas-Pan American campus), Harlingen, McAllen, Port Isabel, Rio Grande City, and South Padre Island. UTRGV, a comprehensive academic institution, enrolled its first class in the fall of 2015, and the School of Medicine welcomed its first class in the summer of 2016.
