(July 9, 2013) -- Meet Chris Anderson. Over the next year, Chris will be learning the ins and outs of city government as a City of San Antonio Management Fellow.
Chris is the first UTSA alum to achieve a placement in this nationally recognized, fiercely competitive program.
"I'm really proud to have been chosen to participate," said Anderson. He is one of three fellows chosen this year from a pool of 167 applicants. "I'm thrilled to be able to demonstrate the quality of education I received at UTSA."
Chris will spend his first four months in the Management and Budget Office before moving on to another department. While working with the City, he will see first-hand the challenges that city governments face every day while also learning about innovative solutions to solve them.
Chris is a graduate of the UTSA Master of Public Administration program and has dedicated his life to helping the public. Prior to his acceptance into the program, Chris worked as a case manager for the San Antonio Housing Authority's Family Self-Sufficiency. He said the work he did there encouraged him to apply for the fellowship program.
"I'm interested in the positive impact I can make on others through public service," said Chris. "This fellowship is the perfect way to not only prepare myself for the next stage of my career but also sharpen my skills as an adaptable and dependable leader in my community."
