(Oct. 13, 2011) -- The UTSA Student Leadership Center announces Xavier Johnson as Roadrunner of the Month for September 2011. Johnson was nominated by John Montoya, UTSA assistant director of student activities and student government.

A UTSA junior sociology major, Johnson is from Austin, Texas, where he graduated from Lake Travis High School. With his degree in hand, Johnson hopes to become an entertainment lawyer representing artists, musicians and actors.

As the president of the UTSA Student Government Association, Johnson is an excellent example of leadership. At the fall convocation, he addressed the freshman class, talking to them about community, leadership, scholarship and integrity.

According to Montoya, "Xavier exemplifies leadership on campus by being a leader who recognizes that his job is to serve his constituents."

At the annual Roadrunner Camp, he encouraged the incoming freshman to get involved and provide feedback to student leaders in order to enhance their UTSA experience.

"Leadership means helping others selflessly and wholeheartedly," said Johnson. "Leadership means taking initiative and motivating others to do so as well."

The Roadrunner of the Month award is sponsored by the Student Leadership Center to recognize outstanding UTSA student leadership contributions. Nominees must meet these criteria:

  • Full-time UTSA undergraduate or graduate student
  • Cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or higher at the time of nomination
  • Demonstrated excellence in leadership above and beyond typical expectations
  • Nominations should be for actions that positively impact the UTSA community
