Joe and Teresa Lozano Long (sitting center, front row) enjoyed visiting with graduates and students of the Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long Presidential Scholars program.
Scholars reunite to honor Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long
"Our Long Presidential Scholars program at the Medical School has been one of the most worthwhile programs we’ve ever done," Mr. Long said. "We are very proud to see so many accomplished graduates who are now practicing medicine across South Texas, and we know there will be many more in the future."
In 2008, the Longs donated a historic gift of $25 million - the couples’ largest donation ever to any institution - to the Health Science Center. The university’s main campus on Floyd Curl Drive in San Antonio is named in their honor - the Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long Campus - acknowledging the couple’s generosity.
Jessica Treviño Jones was among the students who attended the reunion. She is a fourth-year medical student who will graduate this year and begin her internal medicine residency program here at the UT Health Science Center San Antonio.
"Thank you for letting me be a part of your Long family," Treviño Jones said. "Without your support, I would never have been able to have time for both my education and my family. Now my husband and I have a beautiful son and with my education and training that you’ve made possible, I’ll be able to support his future. I can’t express how much this means to us. We are so grateful."
