(May 21, 2012) -- The UTSA Student Leadership Center announces Darnell Thomas as Roadrunner of the Month for March 2012. Thomas was nominated by his peers and fellow UTSA students Jerome Scott, Victoria Steele and Zack Dunn.
"Leadership to me means helping others reach their full potential," said Thomas.
Thomas is from Spring, Texas, where he graduated from Klein Collins High School. He is a UTSA senior studying accounting. With his degree, he plans to become a transactional lawyer to work toward bank reform and a debt-free America.
As the new Student Government Association treasurer, vice president of leadership and training in the Student Organization Council, active member in the student group GLBTQ, recipient of Who's Who at UTSA 2011 and LeaderShape 2011 graduate, Thomas is an excellent example of leadership at UTSA.
This fall, Thomas helped oversee the Involvement Fair, which is an opportunity for student organizations to introduce themselves to interested UTSA students. This spring, he spearheaded the University Life Awards project.
According to Jerome Scott, "Darnell exemplifies everything that a Roadrunner stands for -- pride, courage and integrity in their highest forms."
Zack Dunn added, "Darnell is a true leader who is concerned with the welfare of not only himself, but the other students on this campus."
Victoria Steele said, "As a leader, Darnell helps other students become leaders."
The Roadrunner of the Month award is sponsored by the Student Leadership Center to recognize outstanding UTSA student leadership contributions. Nominees must meet these criteria to be considered for the award:
