A New Path To A Better Future
Marissa, a College Advising Corps adviser at Texas A&M University has a student who is first-generation. Marissa says she is moved by her student’s determination to better their life. Her student set their sights on Texas A&M University and thus far, is the only one from their school to receive the Valero Alamo Bowl Scholarship. Marissa knows that her student will succeed at whatever school they choose to attend next fall. The TAMU program gives students a personal role model, champion, and resource who understands what they are up against and is available to help them down a path to higher education. Texas A&M University was established in 2011 with 32 advisers. Today, the program includes 56 advisers serving 54 high schools in Bryan, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, and the Rio Grande Valley communities.
I’m grateful to have had a College Advising Corps adviser when I was in high school. It's an honor being a part of the College Advising Corps at Texas A&M University.Juan Medina, Adviser, C.E. King High School
