(Dec. 21, 2011) -- For the third year, Facilities staff members at the UTSA Downtown Campus adopted a family that was recommended by a Lanier High School administrator. The family is Diane Ponce and her daughters Lisa, Lucia and Selena.

The Facilities staff members, along with UTSA Downtown Campus employees from Academic Advising and the Office of P-20 Initiatives, gathered gifts, a large food basket, and gift cards from Walmart and H-E-B for the family.

"The Facilities staff members continue to amaze everyone with their great heart and compassion and have not forgotten the true meaning of the holidays," said Marisol Chapa, administrative associate in the Downtown Campus Facilities office.
