The proclamation recognized this day, for UTPB and its 50th Anniversary.
Midland’s Mayor, Lori Blong, also read Midland’s Proclamation. It was a grand and exciting celebration filled with music and excitement from the UTPB band, cheerleaders, and others.
Council members Greg Connell and Steven Thompson attended along with our City Manager, John Beckmeyer, and our City Secretary, Norma Aguilar-Grimaldo.
With this milestone comes an opportunity to reflect on our past and share the exciting things on the horizon. For half a century, UT Permian Basin has been an invaluable pillar of education, innovation, and community in West Texas: Dr. Sandy Woodley, President UTPB.
