UTD Adds 23 New Freshman Students to its Terry Scholars program
Allan Garcia and Matthew Vazquez, Townview SEM 2015-16 graduates, were recently welcomed into the Terry Scholars program at the University of Texas at Dallas.
Terry Scholars are selected for scholastic achievement, leadership and service. The Terry Foundation’s mission is to improve and develop the state of Texas by assisting Texas students to attend the state’s finest public universities. Over the years, the foundation has provided more than $170 million to help nearly 5,000 students across the state.
Allan Garcia is a National Merit Commended Scholar and AP Scholar. He also was cum laude for the National Latin Exam and participated in the choir and UIL One Act Plays at Townview. He volunteered at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, where he taught children about science. Allan plays regularly with his band, FLYNN, and performed recently at a Red Cross event. He will be majoring in biomedical engineering.
AP Scholar Matthew Vazquez is a member of the National Honor Society. He was president of the Environmental Science Club and Guitar Club. Through Big Thought’s La Rondalla program, Vazquez played guitar at the Dallas Museum of Art, The House of Blues, and The Meadows Museum. He also volunteered at the North Texas Food Bank and White Rock Lake. In his spare time, Vazquez has developed a passion for bodybuilding and power lifting. He will major in actuarial science finance.
The process basically includes an online form, and you go thru a short presentation of the rules of engagement with students, how to dress, which restroom to use, etc. and then sign your application electronically. You should receive your email confirmation right away. Entire process takes ~20 minutes.
Thank you for supporting SEM!
