Drew Sancillo is a senior business major and baseball player at TXWES who is set to graduate in May 2021. He is a legacy student and working hard to leave a legacy of his own.
Drew’s mother, Mindy, is an alumna of the university and is thrilled to have her son share some of her experiences. ”Texas Wesleyan is very dear to my heart as I received an amazing education and amazing memories were created there for me,” she says. And like most parents, she is grateful for the scholarship to help pay for Drew’s education. “With the rising costs of education, any scholarship money helps tremendously.”
Head Baseball Coach Bobby Garza sees Drew as a leader and a vital part of the team’s success. “He leads by example and is truly a professional in everything he does. Drew is an outstanding teammate and a pleasure to coach,” says Garza.
Here’s what Drew had to say about Texas Wesleyan and what it means to him:
What are your future plans?
After graduation I am planning on working towards my MBA at Texas Wesleyan while pursuing a job in my area of study. Preferably, I would like to get a job related to sports or hunting since I have a great passion both of those things.
Why did you choose Texas Wesleyan?
I love the fact that Texas Wesleyan is close to home and the amazing reputation the college has. I am able to get a great education and still commute between home and school. The classes are smaller so I feel like I get a better connection with my classmates and my teachers. I am on the TXWES baseball team so being able to play sports and receive a great education is a huge plus.
Tell us more about you.
I enjoy spending time with my family. We take day trips or just shopping trips with my grandparents on the weekend when I am not playing baseball. I love hunting on our family ranch in West Texas. I am also actively involved in my church.
Each year, the Texas Wesleyan Alumni Association awards scholarships to deserving students who have relatives that have attended the university. These scholarships are funded by the Alumni Association and the support of TXWES alumni and friends. Find out more about the alumni legacy scholarship on our website.
