Cpl. Howard Hunter (left) of the UT Southwestern Police Department was among 17 members of the campus police force honored recently by the UT System for the assistance they provided to UT Medical Branch in Galveston in the days after Hurricane Ike struck Galveston Island in 2008. John Slettebo, director of UT System police, presented certificates of recognition to the officers, who traveled in shifts to Galveston and worked with their fellow officers to provide security to the storm-ravaged campus. In addition to the certificates, service pins (photo, upper left) were awarded to honor the officers’ service.
