Lasting Legacy

Emma and Vittorio Argento

Like many newlyweds, Emma and Vittorio Argento struggled to make ends meet. But the couple eventually built successful careers—she in banking and he as a professor in UTA’s Civil Engineering Department from 1978-98. When Emma died in 2012 after more than 50 years of marriage, Vic established the Emma and Dr. Vittorio “Vic” Argento Endowed Scholarship. A planned estate gift will further fund the endowment, which benefits civil engineering students. “I wanted to provide a memory of Emma that would live on,” Argento says. “I also wanted to help the students I enjoyed so much continue their educations.”
