Guam - The University of Guam is a million dollars closer to reaching their $30 million goal in order to build a campus worthy of the 21st Century. Tan Holdings president Jerry Tan presented the check to the UOG Endowment Foundation this morning, saying education is a top priority in his family as he and his siblings are alumni of the university.

Tan, who attended UOG from 1979 to 1983, said, "The students hopefully choose UOG over some other college in the states because I know once they graduate from UOG we have a better chance to retain them to be the local workforce that we badly need in this economy."

Tan Holdings specializes in shipping, real estate and movie distribution businesses.
