(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 email@example.com.
