(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.

UTSA makes the grade with a strong core curriculum

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.
