"UTPA students are a great asset to the community and deserve to be recognized as such. In addition to attending classes, working and caring for family, many are also active in the local community. The beach cleanup is just one example of this," said Erica Perez, coordinator of Student Development at UTPA.
Among the organizations already committed to participate on South Padre Island are Gamma Beta Phi Honor Society, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the University Program Board and the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers.
