UTSA staffers enjoy lunch when colleague wins prize
(Aug. 13, 2004)--Fourteen employees in the UTSA Graduate School were recently treated to a Cajun luncheon thanks to Special Programs Coordinator Veronica Ramirez and her loyal listening to country-music radio station KJ97.
Ramirez, pictured at center in white, won the luncheon after entering a contest 10 months ago in hopes of winning the catered event.

"After I stopped screaming, I gathered the office together and gave them the exciting news," said Ramirez. "It's nice to be able to reward the office for everything they do."
The lunch from Acadiana Cafe included Cajun chicken and jambalaya salad.
KJ 97 deejays Randy Carrol and Pam Tyler have hosted the lunches for more than a year to reach out to people who listen at home and work.
"We brought enough food to feed the winner and her co-workers, then play a few tunes for them on the acoustic guitar," said Carrol.
After the luncheon, the group posed for a picture that was posted on the KJ97 Web site.
