(May 31, 2011)--Carlos Davenport, a member of the Collegiate G-Force mentorship program since September 2010, received several honors this semester for his achievements at UTSA.

Davenport graduated this month with a bachelor's degree in criminal justice with a concentration in legal issues and adjudication and a minor in political science. He is one of 180 UTSA students honored this year for outstanding leadership, scholarship, academics and community service.

This semester, Davenport received the College of Public Policy Most Outstanding Student Award, which recognizes students who have built a record of scholarship, leadership and service to UTSA, the college and community, and who demonstrate a commitment to the college mission. His senior independent-study paper was "Muslims and Minorities Still Are Being Discriminated Against Post 9/11 Attacks on the U.S."

Additionally, he was inducted into "Who's Who Among UTSA Students" and "Who's Who Among College Students in American Universities."

Hosted by the UTSA Office of P-20 Initiatives, the Collegiate G-Force program is a work-study program funded by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to provide mentorships for high school students while promoting a college-going culture.
