(Nov. 11, 2013) -- The UTSA Student Leadership Center announces Kaelie Gonzales as Roadrunner of the Month for October 2013. Kaelie was nominated by fellow student Jared Gonzales.
Kaelie is from Austin, where she graduated from Stephen F. Austin High School. She is a UTSA senior studying business management. After completing her degree, she plans to take an 11-month mission trip overseas. When she returns, she will seek a management position with the government and pursue a master's degree. Eventually, she would like to start her own business in alternative energy.
As a community assistant for UTSA Housing and Residence Life, Kaelie has been an excellent example of leadership at UTSA. Upholding the values and expectations set forth by the department are Kaelie's main priorities, never forgetting that everything she does comes back to the students who live on campus.
According to Jared Gonzales, "Kaelie is constantly going out of her way to fulfill the needs of others and will personally ensure that others receive recognition for their own quality work. She is a person who is humble about her own personal achievements and finds great joy in serving her friends and coworkers in any way possible."
Kaelie has served in leadership roles as the special projects coordinator for the VOICES student volunteering organization and president of the Latin Dance Society. This semester, she helped lead the planning and execution of Extreme Makeover UTSA, a service program that involved hundreds of students volunteering to engage in service projects to improve campus.
"Leaders are those who have left a legacy amongst others, those who invest in others. Leadership is the act of creating new leaders," Kaelie said.
The Roadrunner of the Month award is sponsored by the UTSA Student Leadership Center to recognize outstanding UTSA student leadership contributions.
