(Aug. 13, 2010)--First Light Christian Fellowship, a registered UTSA faculty and staff organization, will host its annual fellowship dinner from 6 to 8 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 31 in the University Center Ballroom (1.104) on the Main Campus.

The cost of the dinner is $10 per person to be paid (cash preferred) at the door. The organization was created as a way for staff members to encourage one another with their faith and by celebrating community.

The keynote speaker for the evening will be Art Hall, a former San Antonio city councilman for District 8, who was elected in 2003 and served two terms. During his tenure as city councilman, Hall delivered the commencement address to the spring 2007 UTSA graduating class in the College of Education and Human Development, provided assistance in helping UTSA undergo its address change in April 2006 and was instrumental in helping to pass the bond package which enabled UTSA to secure funding for the Athletics Complex, positioning the university for its upcoming football program.

Hall is an attorney and investor, serving as president/CEO of artah Holdings Inc. He serves as an associate minister at Grace First Baptist Church. He is married to Stephanie McClain, and they have one daughter, Londyn.

Catering for the dinner will be provided by Amorcito's Mexican Cocina y Cantina. The event is open to all UTSA faculty, staff, spouses and guests. For planning purposes, please RSVP to Denni McCarter by Aug. 23.

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.
