(June 27, 2011)--UTSA President Ricardo Romo has appointed 23 members to the UTSA 2011 State Employee Charitable Campaign (SECC) President's Advisory Committee. Committee members will coordinate various activities to support the campaign throughout October.

The campaign helps a variety of charitable nonprofit organizations. Employees can choose to donate to local, regional or national groups.

Last year, more than $253,943 was raised by UTSA employees with a 90-percent participation rate, earning UTSA the top place among all University of Texas System institutions.

"We've begun planning earlier this year and have many new initiatives we are excited to share," said Irene Maldonado, HUB program manager and SECC tri-chair. "We are honored that Dr. Romo has chosen us to lead the campaign."

>> The SECC marketing committee is seeking testimonial stories from UTSA community members who have benefited or who have family members and friends who have benefited from SECC agencies. The testimonials will be posted on UTSA Today and the SECC website. Submit story ideas at news@utsa.edu.

Football standouts make Roadrunner history

For Ashaad Mabry and Triston Wade, football is not just a passing fancy. Both players were part of the UTSA football program almost from the beginning. When UTSA opens the 2015 season Thursday at Arizona, it will be the first time the Roadrunners take the field without them. But Mabry and Wade will still be playing football; their uniforms will just be a different color.

Mabry, a defensive tackle from San Antonio's MacArthur High School, was an honorable mention All-Conference USA selection his final two seasons as a Roadrunner and second among the team's defensive linemen with 49 tackles last year. Wade, a defensive back from Tyler, was the most decorated player in school history. He was a semifinalist for the 2014 Jim Thorpe Award – for the nation's top defensive back – a three-time all-conference honoree and two-year team captain who set a school record of 293 tackles in his career. Both men had outstanding college careers that allowed them to make UTSA history.

Did you know? Mabry and Wade both agreed to terms as undrafted free agents with the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks, respectively, becoming the first UTSA players to move to the professional ranks.
