(Oct. 9, 2012) -- The UTSA Student Leadership Center announces Nathan McDuell as Roadrunner of the Month for September 2012. McDuell was nominated by Cristina Dominguez, program coordinator of volunteer services.

A senior majoring in communication, McDuell is from Houston, where he graduated from Pearland High School. With his degree in hand, he hopes to work in public relations and perhaps become an actor.

As vice president of programs for the Volunteer Organization Involving Community, Education, and Service (VOICES), McDuell has been an excellent example of leadership at UTSA. This semester, he has organized 15 community-service projects and VOICES has already completed 500 service hours.

According to Dominquez, "Nathan is empathetic, hardworking and dependable. His dedication to his organizations, the institution and the community are evident through the work he has done over his time here at UTSA."

Additionally, McDuell has taken a leadership role as a resident assistant at Chapparal Village and also a Raices peer facilitator for the Inclusion and Community Engagement Center. A role model and educator for both freshmen and returning UTSA students, he is a true example of leadership through service to others.

"Leadership means setting a positive example and encouraging others to become involved on their campus," said McDuell. "Leadership also is striving hard at everything you do."

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:

  • Full-time UTSA undergraduate or graduate student
  • 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 positively impact the UTSA community
