During a meaningful and emotional morning at UNT Dallas, 35 individuals from 17 countries
took their oath of citizenship during a ceremony led by the United States Citizenship
and Immigration Services (USCIS).
On hand to cheer them on were proud family members, USCIS directors and consul generals from various countries. University of North Texas System Chancellor Dr. Michael R. Williams and UNT Dallas Pres. Bob Mong offered congratulatory remarks to the group for achieving this milestone. The event was organized by UNT Dallas Spanish Program Coordinator and USCIS Citizenship Ambassador Dr. Mara Queiroz-Vaughn.
Held appropriately on Election Day, the new American citizens concluded the morning by participating in a voter registration event so they may vote in future elections. Congratulations to all.
