(April 29, 2010)--The UTSA Office of Human Resources training and development department hosted the fourth annual celebration on April 21 for graduates of the Administrative Support Toolbox Series. This year the theme was "You Make a Difference."

The recognition event highlighted the accomplishments of the 15 most recent graduates of the six-part series, along with other UTSA staff who attended one or more of the classes in the series. The special event coincided with National Administrative Professionals Day, which recognizes the vital contributions of administrative professionals across the country.

The Administrative Support Toolbox Series consists of six classes that focus on key functional areas carried out by UTSA administrative staff. The classes provide a high-level overview of the functions, services and resources of each area. Subject matter experts from each of the six areas present important and useful information to class participants. The series runs on a six-month cycle with one class monthly, allowing participation in consideration of busy schedules.

This year's celebration included a beach-themed buffet and an inspirational speech by keynote speaker, Jan Steger, chief of staff for President Ricardo Romo. Steger spoke on the value of lifelong learning and how it is important to have a playbook to guide each person to be successful in whatever role they choose in life.

Additionally, letters of appreciation from the vice presidents and President Romo were presented to seminar graduates in recognition of the unique contributions and roles that administrative support staff members play in UTSA's continuing growth and success. Certificates of achievement were presented to the graduates along with a special gift as a reminder that they make a difference every day.

Did You Know?

Sometimes you have to see the little picture

UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.

That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.

Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
