(April 22, 2010)--The UTSA Tomas Rivera Center is recruiting supplemental instruction (SI) leaders for the fall 2010 semester. A presentation on the SI program will be from noon to 12:50 p.m., Monday, April 26 in Frio Street Building Room 3.530 at the Downtown Campus. At the meeting, students can meet current SI leaders and program staff and ask questions.

Additionally, students interested in joining the SI team can download an application at the Supplemental Instruction website or visit one of the Tomas Rivera Center offices in Multidisciplinary Studies Building Room 2.02.20, Main Camps, and Durango Building Room 2.114, Downtown Campus.

Students applying to be an SI leader must have at least a 3.0 G.P.A., completed an assigned course with an A or B grade, completed 24 credit hours, excellent communication skills, and a faculty recommendation.

Last year more than 160 UTSA students gained valuable experience serving the university community as SI leaders. SI leaders work approximately 10 hours per week attending class meetings, reviewing assigned readings and holding three 50-minute study sessions for students enrolled in historically difficult courses at UTSA.

Representing one of the most rewarding and flexible jobs on campus, the SI program offers a unique employment opportunity that enhances the successful student's academic and leadership experience.

Football standouts make Roadrunner history

For Ashaad Mabry and Triston Wade, football is not just a passing fancy. Both players were part of the UTSA football program almost from the beginning. When UTSA opens the 2015 season Thursday at Arizona, it will be the first time the Roadrunners take the field without them. But Mabry and Wade will still be playing football; their uniforms will just be a different color.

Mabry, a defensive tackle from San Antonio's MacArthur High School, was an honorable mention All-Conference USA selection his final two seasons as a Roadrunner and second among the team's defensive linemen with 49 tackles last year. Wade, a defensive back from Tyler, was the most decorated player in school history. He was a semifinalist for the 2014 Jim Thorpe Award – for the nation's top defensive back – a three-time all-conference honoree and two-year team captain who set a school record of 293 tackles in his career. Both men had outstanding college careers that allowed them to make UTSA history.

Did you know? Mabry and Wade both agreed to terms as undrafted free agents with the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks, respectively, becoming the first UTSA players to move to the professional ranks.
