UT Tyler celebrates 40th anniversary

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - 40 years of educating East Texans is being celebrated this week at UT Tyler.

A crowd gathered in the University Center Theater to reflect on the university's history and significance of our community.

There's no argument that the campus has come a long way from a small college to a prominent, higher education institute.

Mayor Barbara Bass credits the university with educating East Texas and providing much-needed jobs.
