A resolution was approved on the consent agenda in honor of University of Texas Rio Grande Valley President Dr. Guy Bailey for being named 2019 Border Texan of the Year.
Bailey was named the first president of the new UTRGV in 2014. Under his leadership, the university has experienced extensive success in multiple areas.
Currently, UTRGV is ranked first among all Texas Universities for awarding the most undergraduate and graduate degrees to Hispanics. His leadership and commitment to providing a world-class education have helped transform South Texas with unlimited educational opportunities.
The County of Hidalgo congratulates Dr. Bailey on the well-deserved honor of being named Border Texan of the Year. County Judge Richard F. Cortez will be presenting the resolution to him at the Border Texas of the Year banquet on Thursday evening at the McAllen Convention Center.
