At a special board meeting held in honor of Dean Emeritus Joseph Silva, Jr. on December 8th, 2004, the
UC Davis School of Medicine Alumni Association Board of Directors thanked Joe for his exemplary leadership
and support by donating $5,000 in his honor to make him a member of the Dean's Honor Roll of Donors. The
Dean's Honor Role of Donors was created in 2001 to acknowledge donors who have given $5,000 or more to
the UC Davis School of Medicine Alumni Association Scholarship Fund. Members of the Dean's Honor Role
of Donors have name plaques in the entrance of Tupper Hall. The Alumni Association looks forward to awarding
scholarship monies this fall in honor of Joe Silva.
