UHV and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service collaborated to bring the Texas Rural Leadership Program to DeWitt County. The new leadership development program was designed to help DeWitt County residents identify and make the most of the county’s assets.
Twenty-seven alumni participated in UHV’s Business Alumni Week, speaking to business classes in Victoria and Katy about how they have used their degrees to advance their careers. The speakers represented many business industries, including health care, financial services, marketing, accounting, entrepreneurial and information technology.
Eighteen students each received a $2,000 scholarship to help pay for a two-week trip to China where they compared leadership management principals in that country and the U.S. The scholarships were made possible through a $600,000 donation in 2013 from Chinese businessman Bingxin Wu and his wife, Shuqin Feng.
