'Your Time Counts' program honors volunteers

(Feb. 20, 2009)--Last year, 24 UTSA students, faculty and staff members were recognized at the inaugural "Your Time Counts at UTSA" awards ceremony which recognizes volunteer service. Because community outreach efforts often go unrecognized, UTSA implemented the UTSA service and civic participation program in 2007 to recognize UTSA community members who contribute hundreds of volunteer service hours each month that help many organizations succeed.

The deadline to log volunteer hours from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2008, is Saturday, Feb. 28.

Adults age 18 and older logging 100, 250 and 500 hours of volunteer service will be eligible for bronze, silver and gold award levels with lapel pins and personalized letters of thanks from the president of the United States. The program is a way for individual efforts to be recognized, along with the collective community impact of UTSA and the UT System.

UTSA President Ricardo Romo encourages UTSA students, faculty and staff to log their service hours at the UT System President's Service Awards Web site. At the site, scroll down to the UTSA logo and register as a UTSA volunteer.

Volunteers also can register at the UTSA Office of External Affairs Web site with instructions on how to log volunteer hours. Select "UT Service and Civic Participation" links in the left column.
