(Sept. 9, 2013) -- The UTSA Student Leadership Center recently recognized the recipients of the Janice and Wayne Meyr Leadership Scholarship for 2013-2014. This is the second year that UTSA student leaders were awarded the scholarship. Each year, students chosen have proven their leadership skills using the many avenues available to them at UTSA to make positive changes within the university community.
This year's Meyr Scholars are Salina Cram, a senior psychology major and academic affairs chair of the Student Government Association (SGA); Zack Dunn, a junior finance major and SGA president; Julian Williams, a junior public administration major and an orientation leader; and Christian Ume-Ezeoke, a senior community health major and SGA chief of staff.
Janice Meyr and Wayne Meyr, owners of B&R Supply and Equipment Co., made a generous donation to the Student Leadership Center and UTSA students after Janice Meyr attended the Storytelling Series: Women in Leadership Luncheon in 2011. The gift supports the annual scholarships. Janice Meyr is an alumna and UTSA Development Board member.
UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.
For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.
Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
