At tim time he acc^ted the invitation for that event, he was United Stetoi unbaaaador to the United Nations.

Morgan was "surprised and pleased" to learn that she won. Morgan, 1989-90 SRA presi¬ dent, secured 352 votes to beat Michael Flores, who was original¬ ly treasurer and later vice presi¬ dent in that term, who received 292 votes. "Surprised and pleased are the two words that 1 think sum it up best," Morgan said of her reac¬ tion to the election's outeome. SRA members impeached Morgan in March. But, the pro¬ ceedings were stopped by a UT¬ SA vice president's interpreta¬ tion of the assembly's constitu¬ tional impeachment rules before she was removed from office. Although Morgan won a vote by the student body, Flores main¬ tains support from the Assembly. SRA members voted last Wednesday to name Flores, who supported Morgan's impeach¬ ment, their most valuable member of the 1989-90 term. For that title Flores defeated Morgan, who nominated herself. Flores' running-mate, Rebecca Talamantes, did win the vice presidency for the new term in the general elections. Although Talamantes supported Morgan's opponent, Morgan does not foresee continuing opposition in the coming term. "1 don't see her as the opposi¬ tion," Morgan said. "Becky came into the assembly as a friend of mine. She worked on assembly projects before becoming a member "because she was my friend, and saw how hard 1 work¬ ed and decided that she wanted to help me," Morgan continued. President seeks input from student leaders by MeUssa Muse News Editor Dr. Samuel A. Kirkpatrick, UT¬ SA president,, is learning about students' views of UTSA during "informal" luncheons with groups of student organization presidents. "My primary goal is to become better informed about their views of the University. And, lalsowant to telk about their views of the future of the University," Kirkpatrick said. The students' views "will have an impact on our recruitment of a vice president for student affairs,'' he added. Students will do much of the talking at the luncheons, Kirkpatrick said. "1 might have an introduction of some things that 1 think we ought te telk about," explained Kirkpatrick, "but it's an opportunity for me to get to know them." Kirkpatrick said some of the topics that ought to be discussed are the undergraduate experience, curriculum, degree programs, physical expansion, ambiance and aesthetics of the campus, expan¬ sion of residential facilities, stu¬ dent affairs, student services and student activities. The first luncheon was held April 17, in his conference room. Two more are planned for May 2 and 7. Kirkpatrick is also planning lun- cheons with students who are not active in student life. "1 think by meeting with the presidents, I'll cut a pretty broad cross-section. But, 1 would like to get out and talk with some students who aren't necessarily in a leadership capacity, who don't have the time to be involved, he said. "I'd like to be able to know some of those students too." Kirkpatrick quipped his schedule "is just crazy." He said he "had just enough lunches left between now and the end of May to get them (the club presidents) in." Elizabeth Speck / PaiMno Ken Schuitz towers over the Fiesta UTSA crowd. The University Center Program Council brought him to campus to celebrate the twelth year pf Fiesta UTSA. Student affairs boss candidates meet students at reception by Stephen C. Brown Staff Writer The second candidate for the student affairs position was Dr. Bobby Hernandez, vice president for student affairs at Cameron University. In a telephone inter¬ view she said she seeks the posi¬ tion because UTSA "is an institu¬ tion that is growing." In addition to her Cameron University position, she served for nine years at Southwest Texas State University in various stu¬ dent affairs jobs. Hernandez commented that she "received a very warm reception from UTSA studente. " After campus visits, inter¬ views, and university wide recep¬ tions, three finaUst candidates each hope to be named UTSA's new vice president for student af¬ fairs. Dr. Mike Lopez, Washburn University, was the first can¬ didate to visit UTSA. He met studente at a reception on April 12. Dr. Charles Schroeder of St. Louis University was the third and final candidate to be inter¬ viewed for the job of vice presi¬ dent for student affairs at UTSA. Approximately ten students representing various campus organizations were on hand at an April 26 reception in the Roadrunner Roost to greet the Schroeder was given the opportunity to question students about their concerns K.rm Ho«enMn/p*isANo Dallas native. Schroeder was selected as a finaUst from more than 125 ap¬ plicante for the position. He received his education at Austin College and is currently the vice president for student develop¬ ment at St. Louis University. When asked why he was in¬ terested in the UTSA poeition after nine years at the University of St. Louis, he commented, "I was nominated for the position and for a change I decided to look into the opportunity." He also finds "San Antonio to be one of the most beautiful and unique cities in the nation." Schroeder said he had not yet formed an opinion aboul UTSA. "I arrived in the rain at the back of the administration "building and 1 have had nothing but meetings all day," he explained. He was looking forward to a stroll around the campus at the end of the student reception. Schroeder said he would like to increase minority enrollment at UTSA through scholarships '>as- ed on merit and need rather han full emphasis on ACT or .AT scores. He said that no recruit¬ ment effort is complete without focus being placed upon retain- ment. 'To make UTSA mor' 'ban a stepping stone school to o.ner in¬ stitutions and to fulfiU the stu¬ dent" would be a priority to Schroeder. / '*receiveda very warm reception from UTSA students." — Dr. Bobby Hernandez tinalist candidate for vice president for student affairs Dr. Samuel A.
