UTSA College of Business Executive MBA student Glenn Remoreras, vice president of information technology at Constellation Brands, was chosen by his classmates as the 2019 Drymala Scholar.
Established in 2008, the Wayne J. Drymala Memorial Endowed Scholarship is awarded to one graduating EMBA student each year. The award was established in honor of Wayne Drymala, EMBA ’01, who passed away in 2006. The graduating class nominates a peer who demonstrates ethical behavior, contributes intellectually to program activities, supports others and excels in team building and leadership.
“It’s one thing to be recognized by an institution or a company, but another thing to be recognized by your peers,” said Remoreras. “This is very heartwarming and humbling because there are a lot of great leaders in this group.”
Upon receiving the honor, Remoreras emailed his classmates to share that he was donating the $1,000 award to the San Antonio Food Bank on behalf of his 2019 EMBA class.
When asked how he defines leadership, Remoreras explained, “I see a leader as someone who makes a difference in the world, in their team, their company and in the people they interact with, touch, lead and manage. And they do it with courage, integrity and honor.”
Remoreras visited the San Antonio Food Bank with his wife and two young sons and met with Eric Cooper, president and CEO of the San Antonio Food Bank. The donation will provide an additional 7,000 meals to help fight hunger within the San Antonio community.
Reflecting back on his time in the EMBA program, Remoreras shared some highlights from his experiences. “The program has allowed me to build connections, meet new friends–lifelong friends–and improve my capabilities in business, technology and in my career.”
Remoreras will graduate with 29 of his EMBA classmates this month. A special hooding and graduation ceremony for EMBA students will be held on campus on May 17.
