(Sept. 13, 2005)--During UTSA's State Employee Charitable Campaign (SECC), UTSA employees can visit an SECC-supported agency they support or might want to support. It is an opportunity to see that your contribution makes a difference in Bexar County... year-round and one person at a time.
United Way has arranged free tours of several local agencies and charities. The tours are on a first-come-first-served basis and are limited to 20 participants per tour. Transportation will be provided for large groups. See the tour schedule below.
- La Prensa Foundation is newest member of UTSA Lone Star Society
- UTSA alumna Jordan Kaufmann wins $50K for new stent-graft start-up
- UTSA begins new way-finding sign installation this summer at Main Campus

To participate in a tour, download the registration form (a Word document), complete it and e-mail or fax it according to instructions on the form.
For more information, contact Shirley Pipes at (210) 458-6220.
"I encourage UTSA employees to open your Roadrunner hearts and return your SECC enrollment form to your department's SECC Champion -- or donate online," said Albert Carrisalez, UTSA chair of SECC 2005 and assistant to the president/director for external affairs.
UTSA employees who have benefited from an SECC-affiliated agency or charity are encouraged to share their family stories with the UTSA community. If you would like your story shared in UTSA Today, contact Albert Carrisalez at (210) 458-5138.
