UVI Community Invited to ‘Celebration of Life’ for Vice President Tina Koopmans

The UVI community of colleagues, friends and family are invited to attend a “Celebration of Life” of our dear and beloved Vice President, Tina Koopmans. The event will be held at 10 a.m. on Friday, July 14, in the Administrative and Conference Center Building on the St. Thomas Campus and video conferenced to the Albert Sheen Campus on St. Croix, in Northwest Wing rooms 102-103.

In celebration of Tina's carefree and joyful spirit, her husband Kyle has requested that attendees wear beach attire. Tina's favorite color was pink.

Tina poured her heart and soul into making UVI a “Great University” and this gathering is a small way to celebrate her life and her enormous contributions. Our greatest gift to her is to continue the groundbreaking work she help start and to work collaboratively with joy in our hearts and a smile on our face. This is how she journeyed through the institution and through the world.
