Graduated Class of 2012
Please give us a little bit of your background, your hobbies, what you like to do you in your spare time, etc.
I was born in Fort Stockton, Texas, however, I was raised in San Angelo since the age of 2 years old. I attended Wall ISD from elementary through high school and continued my education at Angelo State University. I enjoy arts & crafts, gardening, and spending quality time with family & friends.
What is your current occupation?
This year, I had the opportunity to fill in the role of assisting the Executive Director of Downtown San Angelo, Inc. Del Velasquez. We work to sustain our historic central business district by enhancing economic restructuring, revitalization and preservation, economic vitality, and promotion. Creating an appealing environment for locals and visitors to shop, live, and enjoy while maintaining historical aspects is very important to our organization.
While at ASU were you involved in any organizations or teams and what was your role?
In what ways did ASU help you to achieve your goals after graduation?
Angelo State University opened my eyes to a new world of prospects. I gained confidence in how I handled new situations. Knowing ASU not only gives you resources while attending school but leaves those resources available to you long afterward, is a great feeling.
What skills did you take away from ASU?
ASU helped me to learn self-discipline: meeting deadlines, accountability, and taking action.
Were there any faculty or staff that made a difference for you during your time at ASU?
The faculty at ASU were all easy to get along with and willing to assist students outside of scheduled class times.
What is one of your fondest memories of ASU?
Watching the sports programs at ASU was so much fun and still is. I really enjoyed watching basketball the most. The players are not only trying to compete for their own sense of triumph, but also for the entire school.
Can you please provide a quote about your experience at ASU/what ASU means to you?
Angelo State University is an environment that can develop your responsibility, your education and your future in a positive way.
