Three College of the Mainland Students Named to All-Texas Academic Team
Three College of the Mainland students were named to the All-Texas Academic Team from among Texas community colleges.
Breanna Clarke, Maria Henriquez and David Milling were three named to the team and will be recognized by the University of Texas System and the Texas Association of Community Colleges on March 30 in San Antonio.
Clarke, 20, is a process technology major, who plans to graduate in May.
“I plan on getting a good job and bettering my life through my degree. I eventually want to travel and my degree will help me be able to accomplish that. Above all, I will be able to provide a good life for myself, she said.
Henriquez, 17, will graduate as Valedictorian of Collegiate High School in May. She will graduate in May with an Associate of Arts degree in general studies and one in science and mathematics. The first-generation college student plans to further her education at the University of Texas at Austin and major in chemistry.
Milling, 21, also plans to attend the University of Texas after receiving his associate degree in general studies. At UT, he will study kinesiology.
All three COM students are members of the Phi Theta Kappa honor society which recognizes academic achievement of community college students.
Each year, about 100 outstanding community college students who excel in academics, leadership and service are selected from the 50 community college districts in Texas to be honored as members of the All-Texas Academic Team.
