The University of Texas at San Antonio Alumni Association honored three recipients for signature awards at the 17th annual UTSA Alumni Gala on Aug. 20, including Brother Rob Killen (UTSA ’97).
The UTSA Alumni Association established the Alumnus of Year award in 1980 to recognize UTSA alumni who have gained unique distinction through their accomplishments and to focus attention on their achievements.
Rob Killen is a 1997 graduate of UTSA, where he earned a B.S. in political science and is an attorney with Kaufman Killen where he’s worked on several land use issues for individual developers and on behalf of the San Antonio development industry since 2001. Killen has been involved in every major revision to San Antonio’s Unified Development Code since 2001 and has participated in revisions to the Tree Preservation Ordinance and Vested Rights Ordinance. He was honored with the San Antonio Business Journal’s 2012 Outstanding Lawyer Award and was named one of the journal’s “40 Under 40.”
While a student at UTSA, Killen served as president of the Student Government Association and the UTSA Lambda Chi Alpha chapter. Killen is a life member of the UTSA Alumni Association, served as president of the Association from 2009 to 2011 and served on the UTSA Development Board from 2009 to 2011.
The annual UTSA Alumni Gala brings together UTSA alumni, friends and guests to celebrate the Association’s 39 years of scholarships and service programs. Proceeds from the event will help support UTSA Alumni Scholars and Alumni programs. Since 1980, the UTSA Alumni Association has awarded more than $1.5 million in scholarships to support UTSA students.
Congratulations to Brother Killen on his recognition and for continuing to live the values of our great fraternity. (Via UTSA Today)
