Meet Gabie Maxey, an alumni association scholarship recipient
Meet Gabie Maxey, a psychology major who plans to graduate from TXWES in 2021. Even though Gabie is a commuter student, she does not let that stop her from being involved on campus. With schoolwork around every corner, Gabie still chooses to dedicate time to serve on the Programing Activities Committee and being a member Alpha Xi Delta and spiritual life on campus.
Gabriela is extremely close to her family and always wanted to stay in Fort Worth for college. What better school to attend then her mother’s, Jeannie ’01, alma mater? Here’s what Gabie had to say about her time at Texas Wesleyan and the role it plays in her future.
What are your future plans?
My plans after graduation are going to grad school and obtaining a Ph.D in neuropsychology. It is my vision to understand neuropsychological disorders based on brain behavior.
Why did you choose Texas Wesleyan?
I chose Texas Wesleyan to take advantage of the “Smaller. Smarter.” Community. I was also looking for a school closer to home, and TXWES was a perfect campus to commute to. Throughout my time at this school, I have never regretted my decision to begin my journey towards my Ph.D. here.
What is your favorite thing about being a student at TXWES?
I appreciate the culture of the campus and the one-on-one relationship I have with my professors. TXWES also has many resources for students to get involved on campus and a variety of outlets for students to hold leadership roles in those campus organizations. I’ve had the opportunity to serve in leadership roles in two campus organizations and it’s been a great learning experience!
Tell us a fun fact about you.
I am an all-time winner in my family’s annual baking competition! (This baking competition is very serious, and we have family fly down from Washington to participate.)
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.
