Students from The University of Texas-Pan American and Rio Grande Valley high schools packed the Student Union during the UTPA Leadership Conference Feb. 4. During the conference, hosted by the Student Leadership Academy and the Student Leadership Program, Chad Crittenden, TV star for NBC's reality show "Survivor", encouraged students to continue reaching for their goals. Pictured is Crittenden, who had one of his legs amputated due to cancer. He said he participated on the show "Survivor" to demonstrate that people with disabilities are as capable and hard working as anyone else. The conference was designed to provide leadership training to current high school and college students.
