A few days ago I attended the presentation of the portrait of the Rector Daniel Hernández Ruipérez along with the rest of the Vice Rectors who have worked with him during his term at the head of the University of Salamanca. An event that, according to our Rector Daniel, was perhaps the last one directly related to his term of office.
Certainly, the paintings perpetuate all the rectors of the university and, in this case, the extraordinary work of Gonzalo Goytisolo reflects the character of a rector of the eighth centenary, of a rector who knew how to coordinate a team and strengthen the institution at a time of hardship. Daniel, as some rectors had done before, came up with a plan and a team, and knew how to direct both in agreement, implementing numerous actions that boosted the University of Salamanca, making it even more of a leader in all areas: research, transfer, training, internationalization…
Daniel, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the chance you gave me to collaborate with you and your team, because it was a wonderful period in which I learned a lot and we were able to develop important projects together. That experience is now allowing me to face new challenges and undertake some projects that I never thought would be within my reach.
Congratulations Daniel for your work, which now, looking back over the years, has become even more important, and this painting will keep it very much alive among us.
