(Feb. 8, 2018) -- UTSA alumnae Ileana Gonzalez '16, and Rebecca Smith '14, first met while serving as student leaders at UTSA. Since then, the besties have shared many special moments together, including the title of Ms. UTSA. Smith, who was crowned in 2013, passed the royal torch to Gonzalez the following year.
Today, Gonzalez is a communications coordinator with The National Association for Latino Community Asset Builders, and Smith is pursuing her education to become a physical therapist. Although the two have graduated from UTSA, they remain the best of friends, and are grateful for their time at the university.
Roadrunners who have a special relationship like Gonzalez and Smith’s can now honor it at UTSA, by naming a special spot on campus for one day.
The campaign Name Your Special Place at UTSA (for one day) allows individuals to name a special spot on campus in honor of a friend, significant other or mentor. To show Rowdy love and name the special spot at UTSA, a minimum gift of $10 must be made online by Feb. 13. After gift processing, the special place will be photographed and shared on social media. Certificate and photo will then be mailed to the donor.
