(January 22, 2010)--UTSA implemented a service and civic participation program in 2007 to recognize UTSA community members who contribute hundreds of volunteer service hours each month that help many organizations succeed. The deadline to log volunteer hours from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2009, is Friday, Feb. 26.

Adults age 18 and older logging 100, 250 and 500 hours of volunteer service will be honored at the "Your Time Counts at UTSA" award ceremony and luncheon hosted by President Ricardo Romo. Volunteers logging these service hours will be presented with bronze, silver or gold award lapel pin along with a personalized letter of thanks from the president of the United States. The program is a way for individual efforts to be recognized, along with the collective community impact of UTSA and the UT System.

UTSA President Ricardo Romo encourages UTSA students, faculty and staff to log their service hours at the UT System President's Service Awards Web site. At the site, scroll down to the UTSA logo and register as a UTSA volunteer.

Volunteers also can register at the UTSA Office of External Affairs Web site with instructions on how to log volunteer hours. Select the "Your Time Counts at UTSA" link in the right column.
