(Nov. 4, 2011) -- The UTSA Student Leadership Center announces Justina Williams as Roadrunner of the Month for October 2011. She was nominated for the honor by Charlin Jones, UTSA assistant director of special events.

Originally from New Orleans, La., Williams graduated from North Crowley High School in Fort Worth, Texas. A UTSA junior studying electrical engineering, she hopes to develop technology that will improve life for people with disabilities. Looking forward to working as an engineer, she eventually would like to open a nonprofit agency to give back to the communities that played a role in her life.

As a former peer leader and residential assistant, and current president of the Honors Alliance, Williams is an excellent example of leadership at UTSA. According to Williams, these positions have challenged her to be the best version of herself as she strived to "pay forward" after the help and support she received from others in her time at UTSA.

"Justina works to be a strong, fair leader to her fellow officers and members of Honors Alliance," said Jones. "She has proven herself as a mentor to her fellow students and leads by example through her involvement and commitment to UTSA."

"Leadership is the ability to see that you are part of something greater than yourself and conveying that vision to others," said Williams. "Leadership is pushing others to reach and strive to their full potential."

The Roadrunner of the Month award is sponsored by the UTSA 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
  • Nominations should be for actions that have a positive impact on the UTSA community.

Submit nominations at the UTSA Student Leadership Center website.
