(Feb. 28, 2014) -- UTSA students are encouraged to nominate a friend or themselves for the 2014 Student Volunteer of the Year Award. The award honors an outstanding student for their time, effort and commitment to volunteerism and enhancing civic life in the community. Additionally, faculty and staff members can nominate students.
Oluwaseun (Rita) Adeyinka, the recipient of the 2013 award and Sandra Cisneros scholarship, was nominated by a UTSA staff member who saw growth in the recipient through her service work. Since receiving the award at the 2013 University Life Awards, Adeyinka used the $500 Sandra Cisneros scholarship towards graduate school tuition at UTSA. She is pursuing a master's degree in biomedical engineering and is anxious to see who will be the next Roadrunner to pick up the torch of service and the legacy they will leave for UTSA and the San Antonio community.
