    Spring 2014

     

    SPC students recognized at TRiO luncheon                                          

     

    LEVELLAND – South Plains College will participate in the 2014 TRiO Achievers Luncheon at 11:30 a.m. on Friday (March 28) at The Legacy Event Center in Lubbock.

    Originally created in the Higher Education Act of 1965, the TRiO programs were created to assist students from low-income families overcome class, social and cultural barriers to enter college, graduation and participate in America’s economic and social life.

    TRiO currently refers to seven programs, and the South Plains Area TRiO programs include Upward Bound Programs, Upward Bound Math Science, Talent Search, Educational Opportunity Center and Student Support Services.                                                                                         

    Each program will honor a TRiO achiever during the luncheon. SPC will honor Janie Perez and Efren Marrufo.

    The SPC Upward Bound program selected Perez as its 2014 TRiO Achiever. Perez participated in the program from 2004 until 2008. Perez said she owes her success to the program.

    “Upward Bound made me realize my hopes and dreams and then gave me the knowledge to attain them,” she said.

    The SPC alum earned her bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from Texas Tech University. She is an intern at High Point Village where she is in charge of the ceramics department. She said her ultimate goal is to own a private studio where she can sell her artwork.

    The SPC STAR Center (Student Support Services) selected Efren Marrufo as its 2014 TRiO Achiever. Marrufo joined the program in the fall of 2006 and later earned his associate degree from SPC in 2012. He then transferred to Texas Tech University and graduated with his Bachelor of Arts degree in Jewelry Design and Metalsmithing. He said the TRiO program provides the information and support many first generation college students need.

    “I just want to thank the TRiO programs for teaching me and giving me an academic platform to stand on,” he said.

    Marrufo’s artwork was in six exhibitions in 2013. His work has been displayed locally, nationally and internationally. He plans to pursue a post graduate degree in the arts.

    For information on the STAR Center, contact Rita Quionez-Prieto, director, at (806) 716-2750. For information on Upward Bound, contact Chris Riley, director, at (806) 716-2651.
