In September, the Foundation received a one-page letter from alumna Rosa B. Martinez, who was awarded an associate of arts degree in business administration from Highlands in 1962. In the letter, she described working with an attorney on developing a living trust, the intention of which was to leave her home and property to the University on one condition: if for any reason the property was no longer in the trust’s possession at her passing, the University would receive a onetime cash distribution, instead.

“I wanted to make sure the University got something no matter what happens, and I can still sell the house if need be,” Rosa said.
