The San Antonio Business Journal is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2012 Going Green Awards. The annual competition features “the companies and people driving the design and innovation in our local green economy” and has highlighted components of UTSA in this year’s list of winners.

UTSA and the Texas Sustainable Energy Research Institute are recipients of the Leadership in the Public Sector 2012 Going Green Award. The Institute is recognized for its commitment to developing citizen leaders for a global community and leading multi-disciplinary research endeavors that will produce tangible impact for the city of San Antonio. The UTSA Small Business Development Center also received recognition for their efforts in connecting UTSA students with real-world experience and application in sustainable energy fields.

Michelle Garza, an Undergraduate Research Assistant at the Institute and undergraduate Environmental Science major, received the “Up and Comer” 2012 Going Green award for her dedication to environmental outreach in the San Antonio community and leadership on the UTSA campus as President of the Roadrunners for Renewable Resources student organization.
