RGV Initiative Commemorates a generous donation

On Tuesday, October 18 - A signing was held to commemorate donations from the City of Weslaco and the Weslaco Economic Development Corporation (EDC) to the Texas A&M University-Kingsville Rio Grande Valley Engineering Initiative.

The Engineering Initiative makes it possible for engineering students in the Rio Grande Valley to earn a Texas A&M-Kingsville degree. The goal of the initiative is to accommodate students who receive their first two years of instruction from Rio Grande Valley community colleges, and allow them to transfer to A&M-Kingsville. The Engineering Initiative offers bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral-level courses.

Currently, Engineering Initiative courses are taught at South Texas College Mid Valley Campus in Weslaco, the University Center, on the Texas State Technical College campus in Harlingen, and at Texas A&M University-Kingsville Citrus Center in Weslaco. 

The City of Weslaco and the Weslaco EDC are each donating $30,000 to the Texas A&M University-Kingsville Rio Grande Valley Engineering Initiative. 

Speakers at the event include: David Suarez, Mayor of Weslaco; Steven H. Tallant, President of Texas A&M University-Kingsville; and Rick Talbert, President of Weslaco EDC
