(Oct. 12, 2010)--Volunteers are needed to help run a water station with fellow UTSA students and staff -- and to cheer on the numerous UTSA runners that will compete in this year's San Antonio Rock 'N Roll Marathon and Half Marathon on Sunday, Nov. 14.

"We need at least 100 volunteers to help on race day, so encourage your fellow students, faculty and staff to join in as well," said Jessica Figueroa, service chair of the UTSA Honors Alliance student organization. The Honors Alliance is organizing the official UTSA water station for the second year.

UTSA's station is toward the end of the race -- mile 25 for those doing the marathon, mile 12 for the half-marathon. Parking will be provided for volunteers as well as bonus giveaways.

For details and to register as a volunteer, visit the San Antonio Rock 'N Roll Marathon and Half Marathon website. For more information on the UTSA station, call 210-458-7273.

For acclaimed UTSA writer, poetry rhymes with life

Robert Penn Warren said: “How do poems grow? They grow out of your life.” That is certainly true for Carmen Tafolla. An associate professor of practice with the UTSA College of Education and Human Development, Tafolla has authored more than 20 acclaimed books of poetry and prose, including "The Holy Tortilla and a Pot of Beans." It won the Tom´s Rivera Children’s Book Award in 2009.

Tafolla is a San Antonio native who grew up on the West Side. Attending a private high school, she realized that the literature did not positively portray her community or the people who lived there. She determined to change that in her writing. In published works for both adults and children — more than 200 anthologies, magazines, journals, textbooks and readers in four languages — Tafolla reflects on the rich Mexican-American culture of San Antonio in which she grew up.

Did you know? Tafolla was San Antonio's first Poet Laureate, from 2012 to 2014, and currently serves as the Poet Laureate of Texas.
