Palm Beach Atlantic University students, and especially student athletes, have had a mighty advocate in University trustee Robert T. Owens, who died on Thursday at age 72. Two of PBA’s major athletic landmarks, the Rubin Arena in the Greene Complex for Sports and Recreation and the newly opened Rubin Park baseball field at the Marshall and Vera Lea Rinker Athletic Campus, stand as enduring tributes to Owens’ friendship with the late South Florida builder Jake Rubin. Since 1993, Owens has been president and CEO of the charitable J.M. Rubin Foundation, which has allocated more than $5 million to PBA over the years for both facilities and scholarships.
