The UTSA University Center invites all those who know and have worked with Fred Wilson to join in celebrating his more than 15 years of service to UTSA at his farewell and retirement reception in Ballroom 2 (HUC 1.106) on Wednesday, March 27 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
“Fred Wilson is a dedicated, and hard-working staff member who always has the interests of our students at heart,” said UC Interim Director Herb Ganey. “We will be sad to see him move on but wish him all the best for a wonderful retirement.”
Fred Wilson supervises the many full-time staff who ensure the University Center –the campus living room—is clean and operational each day. Wilson began his career at UTSA as the program coordinator for the Methodist Student Movement. Originally focused on development of programs to counsel at-risk youth, Wilson was headed to Perkins School of Theology to begin a second career as a minister. While working temporarily in the operations area of Student Activities, Wilson became intrigued with the opportunity for impacting the lives of young adult college students through the work opportunities the UC offered.
Wilson has most enjoyed seeing the tremendous growth and maturity of today’s university students as they transition from freshmen to upperclassmen.
“My life has been enriched by the diversity of thought and culture on the UTSA campus and by witnessing each student’s personal educational journey,” Wilson said.
Fred holds a degree in criminal justice from UTSA.
