(March 3, 2014) -- The UTSA community is invited to celebrate the re-dedication of the Sombrilla Plaza fountain at 4 p.m., Tuesday, March 4 on the Main Campus.
Special guest speakers will include UTSA President Ricardo Romo, Nancy Ozuna '93 and Andrew Ozuna '91.
Last fall, the Ozunas contributed $10,000 to jumpstart the "Fill the Fountain" campaign. With a strong response from alumni, students, faculty and staff, UTSA raised an additional $10,000. The UTSA Alumni Association and Green Fund each contributed $75,000 to help the effort.
Because of the generous support of so many Roadrunners, the newly renovated Sombrilla fountain was turned on in time for the start of this semester and is running once again.
The 35-year-old fountain now flows with reclaimed water from the UTSA air conditioning system -- a sustainable solution suggested by UTSA students.
Donors to the Fill the Fountain campaign who attend the rededication can pick up a special gift to recognize their support.
Throughout the summer, UTSA offers more than 60 camps in science, engineering, architecture, sports, music, writing, language, culture and more.
