(March 31, 2010)--UTSA student Adam Barnett is in the new Disney-Touchstone film "The Last Song" starring Miley Cyrus. The San Antonio native will be available for autographs and conversation from 2:30 to 3 p.m., Saturday, April 3 at the Santikos Palladium IMAX Theatre at the Rim shopping center at Interstate 10 and La Cantera Parkway.
A ticket to the 3 p.m. showing of "The Last Song" at the Palladium gets you into the auditorium for autographs and Q&A.
Barnett was born in San Antonio in 1987. While attending Sandra Day O'Connor High School in Helotes, Texas, he participated in theater arts and film critique classes. After graduation, he attended Northwest Vista College. While attending NWVC, he worked at Sea World San Antonio as a cast member of the acrobatic show "Viva!"
Barnett currently attends UTSA and plans to graduate with a bachelor's degree in nutrition and health. He has been a member of the university's Actors Guild. In May 2009, a mutual friend introduced him to Cal Johnson, the stunt coordinator for the new Disney-Touchstone feature film "The Last Song" based on Nicholas Sparks' best-selling novel. Barnett auditioned, completed a screen test and was cast in his first feature film in the role of Teddy.

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.
For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.
Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
