(April 11, 2013) -- The UTSA Student Leadership Center announces Robert Bennett as Roadrunner of the Month for March. Bennett was nominated by Cassandra Delgado, program coordinator in the Office of Orientation and Transition Programs.
According to Bennett, "Leadership is the act of empowering those around you to achieve their life goals. It is the ability to inspire people and give them motivation to surpass their own limits to reach milestones they once thought they couldn't reach."
A UTSA sophomore studying marketing in the College of Business, Bennett hails from Baytown, Texas, where he graduated from Robert E. Lee High School. With his degree in hand, he hopes to become successful in business. He would like to grow as a leader and help others find the leader in themselves.
As a team leader in the Office of Orientation and Family Programs, Bennett has been an excellent example of leadership at UTSA. This semester, he assisted with leading 12 orientation leaders in training, while maintaining a rigorous school schedule and a part-time job off campus.
According to Cassandra Delgado, "Everyone I asked regarding Robert's performance as their team leader only had positive things to say. They all stated they felt like their team was a 'family,' and being on Robert's team was one of their favorite things about joining Orientation and Family Programs."
Additionally, Bennettt has taken a leadership role within his orientation team by challenging and encouraging his fellow orientation leaders. He sees his role as team leader as a way to take his orientation team to the next level.
