The UTEP community celebrated President Diana Natalicio’s 30 years of leadership with a group photo on Wednesday, April 10. Hundreds joined President Natalicio in their “Thank You for 30” shirts to honor her remarkable tenure.


ESC Region 19 Executive Director was recognized as an outstanding alumni with the UTEP Golden Nugget Award in 2016 (pictured above).


"Aguirre earned his bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in education from UTEP, which helped prepare him for his 30-plus year career in education. He said UTEP equipped him with the skills and beliefs that, as an alumnus, he owed it to his community to pay it forward. He is grateful for UTEP’s impact on his life and welcomes every opportunity to give back to the community."
