(March 4, 2014) -- The UTSA community celebrated the re-dedication of the Sombrilla Plaza fountain March 4 at the Main Campus. UTSA President Ricardo Romo, thanked donors, alumni, students, faculty and staff whose contributions paid for repairs to the iconic fountain. The fountain was turned on as the crowd watched.
Alumni Nancy Ozuna '93 and Andrew Ozuna '91 were on hand to express their excitement about the restored fountain. 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.
Through the support of Roadrunners past and present, the renovated Sombrilla fountain was brought back to life.
The 35-year-old fountain now flows with reclaimed water from the UTSA air conditioning system -- a sustainable solution suggested by UTSA students.
