Colleague Elyse Danielle, who nominated him for the award, cited the excellent client service he provided after stepping in to take on her projects during her three-month maternity leave.

Andrew SC “We recognize Andrew for his tremendous contributions to the Department of Facilities Engineering and Project Management,” said Mary Alice Morizen, a Facilities colleague and member of the Staff Council. Mary Alice was one of the five Staff Council members who presented the award to Andrew at the November 7 meeting of the EPM team. “Every day he demonstrates his exceptional his leadership and project management skills along with his dedications and loyalty to his co-workers. He serves as a wonderful example for others at UTSA to follow.”  

Offering their thanks and congratulations to Andrew at the meeting were Paul Goodman, Assistant VP for Facilities Engineering and Project Management; Luis Borrero, Assistant VP for Facilities Operations and Maintenance; and Kathryn Pearson, Director of Institutional Projects for EPM. 

Paul told the group that Andrew had just reached his 11-year anniversary at UTSA. "He always has a positive attitude and never complains, no matter what challenge he is facing," said Paul. "Andrew has completed many projects at the Downtown Campus, which is a little more difficult than doing projects at the Main Campus due to access. Andrew took on the job of co-coordinator of UTSA’s State Employee Charitable Campaign with Brian Montoya, and they did a fabulous job. Andrew is a marathoner and participated in the Boston Marathon last year. He has already qualified for the upcoming marathon. Andrew was a start in the Dale Carnegie training sessions. His speeches really stood out, especially the one where he ripped his shirt off!"

Andrew expressed his gratitude by saying: "This award is really to all UTSA staff who I work with every day.  I am only as good as the people I work with and the people they work with. UTSA is filled with wonderful people who want to succeed and see others succeed." Andrew is living--and recognizes the importance of living--the Business Affairs Guiding Principles.
