"They're not just contributing to a bunch of buildings at the university, they're investing into the future of the island, the future of our island," Underwood explained. "It's economic growth, it's social progress is tied up with the capstone of our educational system, and that is the University of Guam."

Paul Baron of GHD, Don Clark of ASC Trust Corporation, Lou Leon Guerrero of Bank of Guam, Kaleo Moylan of Moylan's Insurance Underwriters, Inc., and Mike Phillips of Phillips and Bordallo were honored today.
