(July 2, 2013) -- The NBCC Foundation, an affiliate of the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC), has selected UTSA doctoral student Angelica M. Tello for the National Board for Certified Counselors Minority Fellowship Program. As a fellow, Tello will receive funding and training to support her education and facilitate her service to underserved minority populations.

The NBCC Minority Fellowship Program is made possible by a grant awarded to NBCC by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration in August 2012. The goal of the program is to strengthen the infrastructure that engages diverse individuals in counseling and increases the number of professional counselors providing effective, culturally competent services to underserved populations.

Tello is one of 24 doctoral-level counseling students selected to receive the fellowship. It is accompanied by a $20,000 education award.

She is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin and UTSA, where she is pursuing a doctoral degree in counselor education and supervision. Her counseling experience includes working with college students at public four-year institutions and working in agencies serving children and adolescents from low-income communities. Her goal as an NBCC Minority Fellowship Program fellow is to support counselors-in-training as they develop an understanding of the mental health issues that face minority and low-income communities.

The NBCC Foundation is an affiliate of the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC), based in Greensboro, N.C. The NBCC is the nation's premier professional certification board devoted to credentialing counselors who meet standards for the general and specialty practices of professional counseling. Currently, there are more than 52,000 National Certified Counselors in the United States and more than 50 countries.

The UTSA Department of Counseling provides students with the skills, knowledge and experiences they need to provide quality counseling services in diverse settings. Students in the program may pursue a master's degree in Counseling (Community Counseling track), a master's degree in School Counseling or a doctorate degree in Counselor Education and Supervision.

Football standouts make Roadrunner history

For Ashaad Mabry and Triston Wade, football is not just a passing fancy. Both players were part of the UTSA football program almost from the beginning. When UTSA opens the 2015 season Thursday at Arizona, it will be the first time the Roadrunners take the field without them. But Mabry and Wade will still be playing football; their uniforms will just be a different color.

Mabry, a defensive tackle from San Antonio's MacArthur High School, was an honorable mention All-Conference USA selection his final two seasons as a Roadrunner and second among the team's defensive linemen with 49 tackles last year. Wade, a defensive back from Tyler, was the most decorated player in school history. He was a semifinalist for the 2014 Jim Thorpe Award – for the nation's top defensive back – a three-time all-conference honoree and two-year team captain who set a school record of 293 tackles in his career. Both men had outstanding college careers that allowed them to make UTSA history.

Did you know? Mabry and Wade both agreed to terms as undrafted free agents with the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks, respectively, becoming the first UTSA players to move to the professional ranks.
