TAMIU Employees Get Recognition for Highest SECC Group Contributor Recognition
Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) employees have a reputation for knowing how to “Go Beyond” … and they’ve done just that by earning the State Employee Charitable Campaign’s (SECC) Highest Employee Group Contributor Recognition Award for 2018.
The campaign, “Together We Care,” enables state employees to share their support for over 300 charities including 22 local and area charities and the United Way of Laredo
TAMIU SECC Committee members Mary Treviño, director of Migrant Programs, and Dr. Marcela Uribe, learning resources coordinator, presented a plaque recognizing the distinction to TAMIU president Dr. Pablo Arenaz this week.
“I’m really proud of our employees and their commitment to the community we all love and want to elevate. What’s especially significant is that TAMIU employees, through their shared generosity, provided $50,238 to last year’s campaign….the highest of any SECC group in Laredo…and have already targeted providing an even greater gift this year. In this, the University’s 50thAnniversary year, it’s another way we can show how we impact our community,” Dr. Arenaz said.
Treviño observed that over the years the University has consistently been a campaign Pacesetter, Top Five Contributor and routinely posts the greatest increase by dollar and percent.
“TAMIU employees have a big heart, and a bigger belief in our community. We appreciate their ongoing support and commitment to the campaign,” she noted.
