(Houston) - Sofia Adrogué, a Member of Gray Reed & McGraw’s Houston office, is one of the 2014 winners of the University of Houston Law Center’s Arrival Awards. The awards honored four Houstonians for their outstanding achievements in their careers and communities since immigrating to the United States. The award is sponsored by the Law Center’s Immigration Clinic, which has assisted thousands of immigrants to date who could not otherwise afford legal representation.
Winners of the 2014 Arrival Awards are: 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, 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.
Adrogué was presented with the award on March 6 during a reception at the River Oaks Country Club in Houston. UH Law Interim Dean Richard M. Alderman discussed the importance of the clinic and the contributions of those being honored.
“Your support is what makes it possible for the Law Center’s Immigration Clinic to keep providing vital services to the community, and continue training the next generation of lawyers, many of whom have joined us tonight,” Alderman said. “It is my privilege to be here tonight to honor the work of our clinic, and to celebrate the accomplishments of our four exceptional honorees.”
