About 75 El Paso women leaders welcomed incoming UTEP President Heather Wilson to the Sun City at a private reception, held April 12 at the Westside home of Ginger Francis.
Wilson is set to resign as U.S. Air Force Secretary and start her new job Aug. 15. She takes over for longtime UTEP President Diana Natalicio, 79, who is retiring after 30 years.
YWCA Paso Del Norte Region CEO Sylvia Acosta introduced Wilson, who made a few brief remarks. She said she was excited about coming to El Paso and praised Natalicio, saying she has long admired her.
