Get to know alumni scholarship recipient Lizeth
Lizeth Menchaca, a junior education major, is a recipient of the 2016 Alumni Association Legacy Student Scholarship. Menchaca is involved in all things Texas Wesleyan, from being a President’s ambassador to assistant director of intramural sports. She’s also a Mortar Board member and the Guardian of the Golden Shears secretary.
“What I love about Texas Wesleyan are the awesome professors and pro-staff," Menchaca said. "They really do go above and beyond to see you succeed and help you grow as a person throughout your college career. Smaller really is smarter!”
After she graduates, Menchaca aspires to be an elementary school teacher and plans on later returning to school to get her masters in school counseling. She’s extremely honored to have received the award and is grateful to the Alumni Association.
“Thanks to the generosity of the Alumni Associate and their investment in my education, I have the opportunity to not only continue representing Texas Wesleyan but to one day make a difference in children’s lives,” Menchaca said.
