books are meant to be shared, not stored.
Ecatepec, Mexico (PRWEB) July 6, 2009
The Universidad Estatal Del Valle de Ecatepec (UNEVE) has dedicated a new campus building and library to Dr. Fabrizio Mancini, president of Parker College of Chiropractic located in Dallas, Texas.
The brand-new building which will house the library is currently under construction and is set to be completed by October 2009. The Secretary of Education for the State of Mexico, Licenciada Maria Guadalupe Monter Flores, represented by the Subsecretary of Middle and Superior Education, Licenciado Jorge Cruz Martinez, as well as academic and administrative directors from UNEVE honored Dr. Mancini at a special ceremony where they unveiled the blueprints.
"To recognize your generosity, an act which we are confident will provoke other donations from similarly generous people and institutions, we are naming our library Biblioteca Dr. Fabrizio Mancini," said Dr. Ismael Sáenz Villa, Rector at UNEVE.
Dr. Mancini recently donated more than 1,200 books from his personal library to the university, understanding that "books are meant to be shared, not stored."
"I've always been an avid reader, and for more than 20 years I've saved the books that have influenced me most. I imagined one day I would have a home library and surround myself with these great books," said Dr. Mancini. "When I saw that UNEVE did not have many books, I felt inspired to share all this wisdom with their students for generations to come."
UNEVE is a public university located near Mexico City, offering Mexico's only chiropractic program. Dr. Mancini was instrumental in helping establish the program, which opened in 2001, and since then has produced hundreds of highly-trained and skilled chiropractors dedicated to bringing chiropractic services to the people of Mexico. Parker College is also active within the UNEVE community through a Clinic Abroad program that gives Parker students hands-on clinical experience in addition to Spanish classes and a total immersion experience in Mexican culture.
Dr. Mancini recently celebrated his 10th anniversary as president of Parker College of Chiropractic. During his tenure as president, he has continued to shape Parker into one of the foremost chiropractic colleges and has guided Parker Seminars into the most cutting edge chiropractic wellness industry seminars in the world. Dr. Mancini's passion for chiropractic and service has earned him recognitions such as: Humanitarian Award, Heroes for Humanity Award, Chiropractic of the Year Award, CEO Award, Vision Award, High-Spirited Citizen Award, Rising Star Award, Crystal Apple Educators Award, Extra-Ordinary Speaker Award, Award of Honor, Who's Who, ACA & TCA President's Award, and more. Dr. Mancini has been recently inducted into the Wellness Revolutionaries Hall of Fame for his contributions in this field. He is also the co-author of the best-selling series Chicken Soup for the Chiropractic Soul.
