Roadrunner of the Month
The UTSA Student Leadership Center announces James Comer as Roadrunner of the Month for November 2013. James was nominated by Raquel Stark, a fellow UTSA student.
James is from Corpus Christi, TX where he graduated from Claudia Taylor Johnson High School. He is currently a first-year student studying Finance. With his degree, James would love to be successful in the finance world and he is considering investment banking.
As the VP of Finance for the Collegiate Entrepreneurs Organization, James has been an excellent example of leadership at UTSA. During his first semester at UTSA, he joined the organization and immediately decided to get involved and serve in an officer position. According to Raquel Stark, "James exemplifies campus leadership by taking the initiative. I think James is a natural leader. He is exceptionally bright and mature for his age, and he has a knack for interpersonal relationships." Additionally James has taken a leadership role within the campus community by participating in various events and programs and encouraging his fellow students to get involved. In order to best serve and lead within the community, James balances his co-curricular involvement by placing his academic goals as priority.
When asked what leadership meant to him, James stated, "Leadership is the act of getting something done that you couldn't do by yourself, by getting others to help while positively influencing other people's lives."
