One San Jacinto Plaza Lighting Celebrates UTEP’s Homecoming, COBA’s 2019 Outstanding Alumni
One San Jacinto Plaza will illuminate its façade in UTEP colors from September 27 through October 5 to celebrate the University’s homecoming, along with the College of Business Administration’s (COBA) Gold Nugget and Distinguished Alumni recipients.
Every year, UTEP honors a group of alumni who have achieved excellence in their chosen fields and serve as pillars of inspiration to future Miners for what can be accomplished through integrity, dedication and determination. This group of outstanding graduates are the UTEP Distinguished Alumni and the Gold Nuggets.
This year, the College of Business Administration’s Distinguished Alumni recipients are Roberto Coronado, Ph.D., Miguel Stevenson Fernandez Jr. and Rodrigo Fernandez. The College’s Gold Nugget recipients are Paul Dipp and Lisa Lavigne Saucedo.
The Distinguished Alumni award honors a group of men and women whose achievements stand out as monuments to dedication, integrity and hard work and is the highest recognition bestowed upon alumni of the University.
The UTEP Graduate Business Center is an important part of the College’s portfolio. Located at One San Jacinto Plaza, the facility is home to the College’s professional graduate programs - the UTEP MBA and the UTEP Master of Accountancy (MAcc). Nearly 300 working professionals at various stages of their careers pursue their UTEP graduate business degrees in the heart of downtown El Paso.
