(April 29, 2011)--The UTSA Inclusion and Community Engagement Center announces Ayodeji "DJ" Daramola is the winner of the 2010-2011 Outstanding Black Student Leadership Award.

A senior mechanical engineering major with a 2.84 cumulative grade point average, Daramola is the past president of the UTSA chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc., past vice president and president of the UTSA chapter of the National Pan-Hellenic Council, past leadership development chair of the UTSA chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers, and former parliamentarian of the African Student Association.

Daramola said, "I believe that leadership is about leading not only when you have a leadership position, but to be able to lead in every aspect of your life -- in your community, with your peers and family, and even people you meet daily."

Daramola's picture will be displayed on the UTSA Legacy of Leadership Wall at the University Center Ballroom galleria on the Main Campus.

The Outstanding Black Student Leadership Award was created to honor senior African American/Black students who have excelled in the classroom and worked to create a better sense of community on campus across cultural and ethnic lines through campus involvement and leadership activities.
