I love this vintage 1988 story about the (apparently, judging by the tone of the story) improbable appointment of Dr. Diana Natalicio, a total legend who remained president of the University of Texas El Paso til 2019, and who died this week.https://t.co/kRGykqQw3Q

My heart is heavy learning about the passing of Dr. Diana Natalicio. She was a pioneer in advancing access to higher education for so many underrepresented students (like me) and truly had an impact in countless lives spanning her three decades of service to @UTEP.#RIPNatalicio pic.twitter.com/E4OmfaRmuH

A personal note on Diana Natalicio. I covered her for 30+ years as a journalist. But I also was one of those students who got an education because of her. I flamed out my first time through college. Most places wouldn’t have given me a second chance. Diana Natalicio and UTEP did.

May you rest in peace Dr. Natalicio. Your legacy will live on within UTEP, the El Paso Community and the many whom received a college education/degree(s), like myself, but wouldn’t have accomplished it if it wasn’t for your vision! .

Dr Natalicio, thank you for all that you did for the university and city. I remember hugging you as I walked across the stage. I told you I was a first generation graduate. You smiled, congratulated me, and hugged me again. It was a brief interaction but, momentous in my heart. Rest In Peace and know that your legacy lives on in the graduates you encouraged.
