(Nov. 16, 2012) -- The UTSA Student Leadership Center announces Brian Smith as Roadrunner of the Month for October. Smith was nominated by Kelsey Bratcher, associate director of student activities and Corey Benson, graduate assistant in the Inclusion and Community Engagement Center.
Smith is from San Antonio, where he graduated from MacArthur High School. He is a senior studying marketing. With his degree in hand, he hopes to have a position in the marketing department at a Fortune 500 company.
As an active participant on the Campus Activities Board, Smith has been an excellent example of leadership at UTSA. He served as marketing director for the Student Government Association and is a peer mentor in the Business Scholars program. Additionally, Smith has worked with a leadership team to enhance the activities board and assist with planning BestFest events as well as Game Day team trainings and preparations.
"Brian gives 100 percent to what he is involved in. He is an active participant, role model, leader, guide, teacher, mentor, friend and Roadrunner," said Bratcher.
According to Smith, "Leadership is being a role model and someone who other students can go to for advice. Leadership is being involved and giving back to the university community."
