Richard and Evelyne Rominger to Receive UC Davis Medals
Rich and Evelyne Rominger have been an integral part of ASI's, and have been valuable voices in sustainable agriculture and the importance of UC Davis' role in California agriculture for decades. We are proud to call them collaborators, and are excited to see them recognized with UC Davis' highest medal.
Alumni Richard and Evelyne Rominger, who for decades have played prominent roles in the community and in statewide and national agriculture, have been selected to receive UC Davis Medals, the highest honor the university presents to individuals.
Acting Chancellor Ralph J. Hexter will present the medals to the Romingers during a June 9 gala dinner at the Hyatt Regency Sacramento.
“Rich and Evelyne Rominger have given generously to UC Davis of their time, talents and resources,” Hexter said. “Their loyalty and passion for seeing students flourish and their alma mater grow and prosper is an inspiration for all of us in the Aggie family.”
The Romingers, who live in Winters, will speak June 10 during the 9 a.m. commencement ceremony of the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.
First presented in 2002, the UC Davis Medal has previously been awarded to 15 people, recognizing the very highest levels of distinction, personal achievement and contributions to the ideals of higher education on which UC Davis is founded.
