(April 21, 2011)--The UTSA Student Leadership Center announces Dezranique Stansberry as Roadrunner of the Month for March 2011. Stansberry was nominated by co-worker Jennette Hughes, a UTSA financial services associate.

A UTSA junior studying biology, Stansberry is from Sugarland, Texas, where she graduated from Stephen F. Austin High School. With her degree in hand, Stansberry hopes to become a pharmacist and to give back to her hometown and UTSA.

As an orientation leader and a resident adviser, she has been an excellent example of leadership at UTSA. As a resident adviser, she helps residents through weekly study groups and offers guidance on how they can become involved and engaged on campus.

According to Hughes, "Dezranique should become Roadrunner of the Month because of her self-driven determination and achieved excellence. Dez has a spirit to serve others and is always willing to go above and beyond expectations."

Stansberry recently was named Volunteer of the Year at the University Life Awards, achieved a listing in Who's Who and is consistently on the Dean's List for excelling in academics. She is actively involved on campus including taking the role of historian in her honor fraternity. Stansberry demonstrates a passion for UTSA and often attends conferences, luncheons and meetings as a representative of the university and an active student leader.

"Leadership is using your knowledge and performing actions to demonstrate your leadership abilities," said Stansberry. "It also means to take full advantage of opportunities presented and shine in your journey of life."

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:

  • Must be a full-time UTSA undergraduate or graduate student
  • Must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or higher at the time of nomination
  • Must have demonstrated excellence in leadership above and beyond typical expectations
  • Nomination must be for actions that positively impact the UTSA community.

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.
