2013 Chancellor’s Dinner Benefits Merit Scholarships, Recognizes Excellence

Celebrating the 27th anniversary of the UC Riverside Alumni Awards of Distinction, more than 350 campus friends, students, leaders and donors gathered together for the Chancellor's Dinner on October 19, 2013. Colorful lights transformed Highlander Union Building's main ballroom into a showcase for the stories of UCR's outstanding alumni, scholarship recipients and the donors who make those scholarships possible. Chancellor Kim Wilcox spoke of the transformative role that UCR plays in the lives of its more than 21,000 students and thanked all those who contribute their personal and financial resources to sustain the institution's mission.

The Outstanding Young Alumnus Award was presented to Ernie Rios, M.B.A. '07 and the Alumni Service Award was presented to Ronald Stovitz '64. The Honorable Virginia Phillips '79 was honored with the Distinguished Alumni Award, while Chancellor Wilcox presented to Dr. Manuela '66 and Randy Sosa the UCR Medallion in recognition of their vision, service and philanthropic leadership. The event was sponsored by the UCR Alumni Association and the UCR Foundation.
