"We're proud to celebrate our 30th anniversary of the Diploma Dash and look forward to another successful event," said Anne Englert, UTSA director of alumni programs. "I'd also like to give a shout-out to last year's event emcee, Joe Reinagel from KENS-TV, who did a wonderful job for us. Also, his daughter is a UTSA student and cheerleader. Go, 'Runners!"
