UTSA P-20 2018 Partner Awards Reception Adds To “Wall of Honor”
The University of Texas At San Antonio’s (UTSA) Institute for P-20 Initiatives (P-20) is known for providing the required leadership necessary to enable pre-k through 20 students to develop and complete their educational goals through programs that focus on rigorous coursework and experiences that will engage parents and prepare students for college and career. However, P-20 has long recognized that the secret ingredient to their success is collaborative partnerships within UTSA and with k-12, other postsecondary institutions, the greater San Antonio community, and beyond.
On Friday, December 7th the P-20 “Wall of Honor” grew by three additional plaques at an afternoon reception held at the UTSA Downtown Campus’ P-20 Information Center. Dr. Lisa Blazer, Interim Vice President for Strategic Enrollment and Dr. Joseph Kulhanek, Associate Vice President for Strategic Enrollment Partnerships, welcomed the guests to the UTSA campus and thanked them for their role in helping P-20 to serve students and families. The honorees also thanked P-20 for the close relationship with their staff and students resulting in many of their students attending UTSA. Honorees were nominated and selected by the entire P-20 Team earlier in the year. Dr. Abel Gonzales, Director of Instructional Outreach Programs and Belinda Saldana Harmon, Senior Director of Community Outreach presented the awards.
