(Dec. 12, 2013) -- The UTSA Student Leadership Center announces James Comer as Roadrunner of the Month for November 2013. Comer was nominated by Raquel Stark, a fellow UTSA student.
Comer is from Corpus Christi, where he graduated from Claudia Taylor Johnson High School. He is a first-year student studying finance in the College of Business. With his degree, Comer would hopes to be successful in the finance world and is considering the field of investment banking.
As the vice president of finance for the Collegiate Entrepreneurs student organization, Comer has been an excellent example of leadership at UTSA. During his first semester, he joined the organization and immediately decided to get involved and serve in an officer position.
According to Stark, "James exemplifies campus leadership by taking the initiative. I think James is a natural leader. He is exceptionally bright and mature for his age, and he has a knack for interpersonal relationships."
Additionally Comer has taken a leadership role within the campus community by participating in various events and programs and encouraging his fellow students to get involved. In order to best serve and lead within the community, he balances his co-curricular involvement by placing his academic goals as priority.
Comer says, "Leadership is the act of getting something done that you couldn't do by yourself by getting others to help while positively influencing other people's lives."
The Roadrunner of the Month award is sponsored by the UTSA Student Leadership Center to recognize outstanding UTSA student leadership contributions.
