(Oct. 6, 2011) -- The University of Texas at San Antonio and the BKD LLP San Antonio office announce the appointment of J. Randy Vogel as president of the UTSA Alumni Association. A 1979 UTSA graduate and former treasurer of the UTSA Alumni Association, Vogel is an audit partner of BKD San Antonio, the 10th largest CPA and advisory firm in the United States.

"I am thrilled with the appointment of Randy Vogel as president of the Alumni Association," said Jim Mickey '78, UTSA associate vice president for alumni programs and marketing. "He brings with him an inherent sense of leadership as well as an unwavering affinity for UTSA. I could not be more satisfied with this appointment and look forward to a bright future for the Alumni Association with Randy as president."

"This is a huge honor for Randy," said Denise A. Green, managing partner of the BKD LLP San Antonio office. "He has a proven track record for leadership and is a steadfast and loyal supporter of UTSA."

"This is a great time to be a Roadrunner," said Vogel. "UTSA is on path to becoming a Tier One university, football has started with a flying success and we have enrolled more than 30,000 students for our fall semester. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead the Alumni Association and its continued growth.

"During 2011, the UTSA Alumni Association grew its endowment to over $1 million, and we would like to continue that trend. This enabled us to award a record number of scholarships in 2011-2012. With our current board members and the university's support, I believe that our goal for continued endowment growth is achievable."
