Between them, Jerry and Shirley Rodnitzky have devoted almost 75 years of their professional lives to UTA. Jerry, a history professor, plans to retire next year after 50 years of service. Shirley retired in 2002 after working nearly 25 years in the UTA Libraries’ Special Collections. To leave a legacy, the Rodnitzkys made a gift to purchase two wooden benches outside University Hall that bear their names. “We hope this will start a tradition of other employees doing the same thing,” Jerry says.
