Alumni Gala Logo

The 10th annual Alumni Gala is Saturday, Aug. 15, at the Westin La Cantera Resort. The theme for the gala is Reflections, in honor of alumni who reflect the past, the present and the future of UTSA. Money raised at the gala provides scholarships for UTSA students. A portion of the proceeds from the gala also benefits programs and services for alumni.

The Alumni Association will honor two alumni with Alumnus of the Year awards: Linda Foster M.A. ’76, principal of Alamo Heights High School, and Cindy Jorgensen M.B.A. ’00, senior vice president and chief financial officer of SWBC. The Distinguished Service Award recipient is Alfonso Barrientez III, group vice president, warehouse operations and Mexico supply chain for H-E-B.

These sponsors will have a student scholarship named for them for the 2009–2010 academic year. The Sapphire level is $1,500 and individual tickets are $125. Each table seats eight.

This year’s chair is Yvonne Fernandez ’85. Honorary chairs are Yolanda ’92 and Robert Crittenden. Yolanda is vice president of leadership programs for the North San Antonio Chamber of Commerce.
