Roadrunner Creed video selected a winner in the 33rd Annual Telly Awards

Telly Awards Bronze Winner
Roadrunner Creed

The Telly Awards has named the UTSA Roadrunner Creed video as a Bronze winner in the 33rd Annual Telly Awards. With nearly 11,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor.

The Roadrunner Creed was established on November 15, 2010 with input and support from students, faculty, and staff from the university community. Last summer, the Roadrunner Creed Marketing Committee thought a video would be an effective way to spread the message with the UTSA community, visitors, friends, family and strong supporters of the university. At this time, the production team has created two videos and more are underway. The Bronze Telly Award was given to the first video of the series.

“Through the Roadrunner Creed video, the UTSA community is able to see our guiding principles come to life through the words and actions of our students, faculty, and staff who took their time to participate in the making of the video,” said Charlin Jones, assistant director of the Special Events Center and Roadrunner Creed Committee Chair. “Seeing the video brings a sense of pride, respect, and responsibility to being a part of the UTSA community.”

The Telly Awards was founded in 1979 and is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films. Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.

For its 33rd season, The Telly Awards once again joined forces with YouTube to give the public the power to view and rate videos submitted as part of the People’s Telly Awards. In addition to recognition from the Silver Telly Council, the judging panel that selects the Telly Awards winners, the Internet community helps decide the People’s Telly Awards winners.

“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards. “This accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”

A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals, each a past winner of a Silver Telly and a member of The Silver Telly Council, judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents. The Silver Council evaluated entries to recognize distinction in creative work – entries do not compete against each other – rather entries are judged against a high standard of merit. Less than 10% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Silver Telly, our highest honor. Approximately 25% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Bronze Telly.

“UTSA has top of the line talent and creativity,” said Kelsey Bratcher, associate director of Student Activities and producer of the Roadrunner Creed video. “From the students to faculty and staff, everyone involved made this project stellar. Award recognition or not, being able to visually showcase the Roadrunner Creed for the UTSA community is already a winning moment.”

You can view the Roadrunner Creed video on the televisions across the UTSA campuses, on YouTube and on the Roadrunner Creed facebook page. It was also played at the UTSA home football games last season.

2012-2013 UC Fee Schedule Now Available

UTSA University Center

The University Center Advisory Council (UCAC) unanimously approved the University Center’s (UC) fee schedule for student organizations, departments, and joint sponsorship/special events for the 2012-2013 academic year. The new fee schedules are now available on the UC website and go into effect September 1, 2012. Although room rates and rates for most resources and services remain unchanged, the revised fee schedule includes the following changes:

New “After Hours / Charging Admissions” Rate Category: The UC has reduced fees by combining the formerly separate “After Hours” and “Charging Admission” fee categories into one category. Fees in the new combined “After Hours / Charging Admission” category represent the lower of the two former categories when they were compared.

Reduced Special Event Package Rates: The UC’s special event packages for both the UC Ballroom and the Denman Ballroom have been reduced by as much as 30%. The packages include room rental, tables and chairs, and basic audio visual equipment.

Less Expensive Piano Rental: Rental of the piano in the Denman and the UC ballrooms has been reduced to only $50 for departments and $20 for students. The UC will tune the piano bi-annually; however, clients may pay for additional tuning if needed.

New Intelligent Lighting Packages: The fee schedule includes new resource packages with programmable lighting capable of projecting multiple colors, patterns, and shapes. Prices vary based on the number of lights in each package, with a special two-light package available exclusively for student organizations.

The UTSA UC is an auxiliary enterprise primarily funded by a designated student fee. Because it is funded by students, it gives student organizations first priority for scheduling and charges lower fees than those for University departments and other entities. The UC’s fee structure and annual budget are approved by the UCAC, a student-led group comprised of voting members from student government, university housing and residence life, UC student employees, and the general student body, as well as two faculty members appointed by President Romo. Full-time UC staff also serve on the UCAC in a non-voting capacity.

University Career Center staff receive certifications

Nine of the University Career Center student services staff members have recently completed an intensive, 120-hour training program that will allow them to obtain a nationally recognized Career Development Facilitator certification. As our staff grew we found that there were differing levels of knowledge and expertise and the training has addressed those issues. The program covers 12 basic competencies central to delivering career-related services and provides a common language and body of knowledge for the staff. In addition to completing the 12 units of material, a comprehensive exam and final project were required to demonstrate competency and command of the content. The training was conducted by a University Career Center staff member, Shirley Rowe, who is nationally certified to deliver the training.

The nine staff that received their certifications are:

  • Barbara Jackson, College of Business Career Counselor

  • Claudia Giliberti, College of Business Career Counselor

  • Dionne Davila, College of Public Policy Career Counselor

  • Karen Ivy, Assistant Director for Student Services

Jewasko, Hill named Hathaway Academic Athletes of the Year

Kelsey Jewasko (volleyball) and sophomore Jeromie Hill (men's basketball)

SAN ANTONIO — UTSA announced Wednesday that senior Kelsey Jewasko (volleyball) and sophomore Jeromie Hill (men's basketball) have been named the 2011-12 Will & Mary Hathaway Academic Athletes of the Year. Jewasko was named the Southland Conference Student-Athlete of the Year, tabbed a second-team Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award All-American and also was a third-team Capital One/CoSIDA Academic All-American following her senior campaign. She helped lead the Roadrunners to a 22-11 record and an appearance in their second consecutive Southland Tournament championship match last fall en route to earning first-team All-Southland honors for the fourth time in her career. The San Antonio native recorded a team-leading 612 digs (5.23/set) during the 2011 campaign and finished as the program's career leader with 2,280. It marked the second consecutive year that Jewasko, who owns a 3.95 GPA in interdisciplinary studies, collected the Hathaway Award.

Meanwhile, Hill was named the Southland Student-Athlete of the Year and also earned second-team National Association of Basketball Coaches All-District 23 and all-conference accolades following his sophomore season. The Cairns, Australia, native averaged 12.5 points and a team-high 6.4 rebounds per game to help the Roadrunners to an 18-14 record and a third-place finish in the Southland West Division with a 10-6 mark. The 6-foot-8 forward shot 48.6 percent from the floor, including 40.7 percent (35-of-86) from behind the 3-point line, and recorded 48 assists, 30 steals and 22 blocks in starting all 32 contests. Hill carries a 3.18 GPA and he plans to major in business with an emphasis in events, sports and tourism marketing/management this fall.

The award is named in honor of the late Will & Mary Hathaway, who both were longtime UTSA Athletics supporters.
