Almost a quarter of all UTMB employees supported the 2013 State Employee Charitable Campaign, which raised $467,228 to benefit charities and causes in the region and across the nation and globe. More than 23 percent of employees participated. SECC chairperson and Dean of Nursing Pam Watson led the effort, coming tantalizingly close to the university’s stretch goal of a half-million dollars. She offered her thoughts, thanks and gratitude to the campus community throughout the campaign.
As part of the campaign, a final prize drawing was held last week for two family memberships to the Alumni Field House. The winners were Patricia Trimingham, a manager for Talent Acquisition and Analytics in Human Resources, and Dr. David Konkel, science writer and editor in the Institute for Translational Science.
