(Feb. 16, 2010)--The UTSA Alumni Association will host a Connections Luncheon featuring former Mayor Phil Hardberger as the guest speaker at 11:45 a.m, Wednesday, March 10 at San Antonio Petroleum Club, 8620 N. New Braunfels at Cee Gee Lane.
Hardberger is a former Air Force pilot, Peace Corps executive, trial lawyer, justice of the Fourth Court of Appeals and sailor. As mayor, Hardberger had a major impact on San Antonio.
His initiatives for the city were far-sighted and far-reaching: support of sustainable energy projects and environmental upgrades to the city's public spaces, notably improvements and extension of the beloved San Antonio River Walk. His lasting legacy is the creation of Voelcker Farms as a citizens' park, recently named Hardberger Park in his honor.
Join us for lunch and hear about the latest adventures of the former mayor in a session titled, "Phun With Phil!" Reservations for Alumni Association members and UTSA students are $20, $25 for nonmembers.
Connections Luncheons offer a way for UTSA alumni and other San Antonio community members to network, establish new relationships, renew acquaintances and learn about timely topics. Luncheons are held quarterly in various locations with programs and speakers of interest to UTSA alumni and the community.
