What: The University of Houston Law Center Arrival Awards dinner.

Where: River Oaks Country Club.

What: Four leading Houstonians were honored for their outstanding achievements in their careers and in the community since immigrating to the United States. Arrival Award recipients were Sofia Adrogué, Law Center class of ’91, of Gray Reed & McGraw; Taseer  Badar, ZT Wealth and Altus Health; Mary Foreman, philanthropist; and Dr. Adan Rios, of the University of Texas Medical Branch. Former heavyweight boxing champion George Foreman accepted the award on behalf of his wife who was unable to attend. 

Proceeds from the evening support the Law Center Immigration Clinic. Videos of the lives of the honorees provided "tangible evidence of the crucial importance of immigrants to our economy, society and nation," noted associate clinical professor Geoffrey A. Hoffman.

Who: Immigration Clinic supporters included Law Center Interim Dean Richard Alderman, Charles Foster, Julie Richardson, Dallas Anderson, Judge Caroline Baker, Scott Sherman, Y. Ping Sun and David Leebron and Wayne Graham.
