Student Spotlight

We are currently featuring Adeniyi J. Omojola, of Lubbock, TX. Adeniyi completed an Associate of Arts in Social Work at South Plains College in 2021. He then transferred to Texas Tech University to pursue a Bachelor's Degree in Social Work. In his own words, "A house that is built on a solid foundation will stand firm because it is well built. South Plains College gave me a solid foundation in my academic career. As someone who just transitioned from Africa to this nation, and was even blessed with a county such as Lubbock, I'm grateful."
