**The Student Leadership Center is no longer accepting Roadrunner of the Month nominations for Fall 2012-Spring 2013. We encourage you to submit Fall 2013 Roadrunner of the Month nominations beginning in September 2013.**
The UTSA Student Leadership Center announces Robert Bennett as Roadrunner of the Month for March 2013. Robert was nominated by Cassandra Delgado, Program Coordinator for Orientation & Transition Programs.
Robert is from Baytown, Texas where he graduated from Robert E. Lee High School. He is currently a sophomore studying Marketing. With his degree, Robert would love to become successful in business. He would like to grow more as a leader and help others find the leader in themselves.
As a Team Leader in the Office of Orientation and Family Programs, Robert has been an excellent example of leadership at UTSA. This spring semester he assisted with leading 12 Orientation Leaders in Training at UTSA while working with his rigorous school schedule and a part time job outside of school. According to Cassandra Delgado, "Everyone I asked regarding Robert's performance as their team leader only had positive things to say. They all stated they felt like their team was a "family", and being on Robert's team was one of their favorite things about joining Orientation and Family Programs". Additionally Robert has taken a leadership role within his orientation team, by challenging and encouraging his fellow orientation leaders. He sees his role as team leader as a way to take his orientation team to the next level.
When asked what leadership meant to him, Robert stated, "Leadership is the act of empowering those around you to achieve their life goals. It is the ability to inspire people and give them motivation to surpass their own limits to reach milestones they once thought they couldn't reach."
