"Becky and I were just ordinary students," Mr. Moores said. "Sometimes we went full time and sometimes we went part time. We worked hard, and it was hard for us to get through. We know it's hard, and we just want to make it somewhat easier for other students." In front of a packed crowd at the press conference, UH President Marguerite Ross Barnett said the donation is " one more step forward to make UH a great university in the 21st century. "I think a lot of people are just like me," Moores said. "If you had a lot of money and you wanted to give it to something, you would do just like I did, and give money to the university." Moores, was appointed to the UH Board of Regents on Oct. 17 and began his six- year term on Oct. 24.

Barnett said when Moores was told it would take about $250,000 to make the Cullen Fountain functional, Moores said he wanted it fixed completely. "The fountain was significant to my wife and I as undergraduates because it was a coming of age," Moores said. "We had been married for quite sometime when the Cullen Fountain was installed."-Debbie Housel
