(Feb. 18, 2010)--The UTSA Athletics Department and DOCUmation announced Thursday what could become one of the largest sports sponsorship agreements in school history. DOCUmation, a San Antonio based technology company, has agreed to provide up to $260,000 in cash and in-kind services over the potential five-year term of the agreement.

DOCUmation is a technology company providing network integration, document management, print-scan systems and FAX-e-SEND services in and around San Antonio. In return for cash and in-kind services, UTSA Athletics will provide advertising on basketball broadcasts, tickets to basketball and football games, signage at UTSA Athletics venues and personal appearances by Athletics Director Lynn Hickey and Head Football Coach Larry Coker.

"We're extremely pleased to welcome DOCUmation as one of our corporate partners," Hickey said. "We have worked with them for more than a year to promote UTSA Athletics. They are a very visible company and share the university's concerns and commitment to the community. This is another major step forward for UTSA Athletics."

As part of the agreement, Coker will become a corporate spokesperson for DOCUmation. A California advertising agency recently visited the UTSA Main Campus to begin production of radio advertisements featuring Coker. He and Hickey also will make personal appearances at DOCUmation events as part of the sponsorship agreement.

"We're pleased to have the DOCUmation name linked closely with such an outstanding University and outstanding individuals like Larry Coker and Lynn Hickey," DOCUmation President Scott Woolfolk said. "They mirror our corporate values, ethics and character and we wanted to be in on the ground floor of starting Roadrunner football. It is a tremendous addition to San Antonio's quality of life and offers young people tremendous exposure to higher education. This is big for the entire San Antonio community."

For acclaimed UTSA writer, poetry rhymes with life

Robert Penn Warren said: “How do poems grow? They grow out of your life.” That is certainly true for Carmen Tafolla. An associate professor of practice with the UTSA College of Education and Human Development, Tafolla has authored more than 20 acclaimed books of poetry and prose, including "The Holy Tortilla and a Pot of Beans." It won the Tom´s Rivera Children’s Book Award in 2009.

Tafolla is a San Antonio native who grew up on the West Side. Attending a private high school, she realized that the literature did not positively portray her community or the people who lived there. She determined to change that in her writing. In published works for both adults and children — more than 200 anthologies, magazines, journals, textbooks and readers in four languages — Tafolla reflects on the rich Mexican-American culture of San Antonio in which she grew up.

Did you know? Tafolla was San Antonio's first Poet Laureate, from 2012 to 2014, and currently serves as the Poet Laureate of Texas.
