University Mourns Passing of Former Advisor Nancy Edwards Avenoso

It is with deep sadness that we report the passing of Nancy Edwards Avenoso, alumna and decades-long advisor to University of Houston-Downtown students.

After graduating from UHD, she contributed more than 25 years of service as a University staff member, retiring in 2006 as a senior advisor. She met her husband, Al Avenoso, former professor of natural sciences at UHD, while working at the University.

"Nancy had a long and special relationship with UHD that culminated with her service on the University's retiree executive board," said UHD President Bill Flores. "She truly was part of the UHD family and will be greatly missed by her former colleagues, friends and students on our campus."
