Meet a Roadrunner: James Pobanz

05.25.17

Meet James Pobanz '14, '17. This UTSA alumnus and veteran is making a difference in the lives of other local veterans.

This spring, Pobanz was offered a job at a local non-profit agency called Family Endeavors.   He assists veterans and their families at the Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic where quality, accessible and comprehensive mental health care is provided to veterans and their families at no cost.  Services are available to any person who has served in the U.S. Armed Forces, including the National Guard and Reserves, regardless of their role or discharge status.  

"My volunteer work and the social work courses I took at UTSA prepared me to help veterans transitioning into civilian life," said Pobanz. 

"I am a veteran myself, so I understand the challenges service members face when it comes to pursuing academic and career goals."  Read more on UTSA Today
