The Graduate School is pleased to congratulate graduate student Jesus Trevino on his selection as the recipient of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board's Kenneth H. Ashworth Fellowship for the 2015-16 academic year. This prestigious $5,000 award is granted to graduate students in either a master's or doctoral program who show exceptional promise in the field of public service.

Jesus's accomplishment reflects the high caliber of students at UTSA. As a student in the Master of Science in Criminal Justice and Criminology program in the College of Public Policy, Jesus is the first UTSA student to receive this award. Jesus's academic accomplishments are not limited to his graduate studies: in August 2014, Jesus earned his Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice from UTSA, graduating summa cum laude. In addition to his success in the College of Public Policy, Jesus serves the city of San Antonio as a full time officer with the San Antonio Police Department.

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board established the Kenneth H. Ashworth Fellowship in 1997 to honor Dr. Ashworth for his service as the agency's Commissioner. Applicants for the 2015-16 fellowship were ranked and selected based on their academic ability, career plans, and individual qualifications, including their leadership and communication skills.
