(Feb. 15, 2011)--The UTSA Student Leadership Center announced Lacy Guaderrama as Roadrunner of the Month for December 2010/January 2011. Guaderrama was nominated by John Montoya, UTSA assistant director of student activities.
Guaderrama is from El Paso, Texas, where she graduated from Franklin High School. A senior studying environmental science, she would like to attend graduate school to pursue an advanced degree in public affairs, specializing in natural resources and the environment. She hopes to work in the field of environmental public policy.
Guaderrama has been a true example of leadership through her high level of commitment and involvement while at UTSA. She started the Environmental Representative group on campus, which initiated the process that included President Ricardo Romo signing the President's Climate Commitment.
Her participation with the Student Government Association, the Alpha Chi honors fraternity and the Green Society has given her opportunities to share her passion for the environment with others. She has turned her passion into action through the many projects she began or became involved with while at UTSA.
"Lacy lives and owns her desire to make a difference in the world," said Montoya. "She is an excellent example of how a leader can embrace an issue, take it on and inspire others to do the same."
According to Guaderrama, "Leadership is something that an individual or a group practices every day. It's about pursing your goals, motivating people and staying focused on your dreams."
The Roadrunner of the Month award is sponsored by the Student Leadership Center to recognize outstanding UTSA student leadership contributions. Nominees must meet these criteria to be considered for the award:
