During Homecoming 2013, two History Department alumni will be recognized by the University for their outstanding accomplishments. Kathy Patrick (B.A., 1982) will join the ranks of UTEP's Distinguished Alumni and Ray Malooly (B.A., 1959) will receive the Gold Nugget Award. Attorney Kathy Patrick has been involved in some of the biggest cases of the last three decades and called “the woman Wall Street fears most” by Forbes magazine. Patrick, a partner at the Houston-based litigation boutique Gibbs & Bruns LLP, earned a J.D. from Harvard Law School in 1985. Her memories of UTEP are “of windows and doors opening.” “I remember every day thinking that there was so much more to the world than I had ever known,” she said. “When I got to UTEP, the amount of energy and insight and challenge was just staggering.”
