Alejandra Gamboa to be student speaker at recognition ceremony

Alejandra Gamboa, president of UNT's chapter of the Golden Key International Honor society and student in Development and Family Studies, will act as the student speaker for the spring 2015 College of Education recognition ceremony.

"I feel very honored to be selected as the student speaker for the College of Education's commencement ceremony," Gamboa said. "Opportunities like this do not come every day and it is a blessing to stand in front of my fellow classmates and professors and share with them the impact that UNT has made on my life. We have all been on this amazing journey together and being able to express what it all has meant to me is a privilege that I hope others can relate to and appreciate."

In addition to the Golden Key, Gamboa is involved with the Emerald Eagle Scholars program, MSA Scholars, Leaders in Family Education, the TRIO program, and the National Honor Society of Collegiate Scholars.

She will be speaking after Robert Bostic, the event's keynote speaker and superintendent of the Stafford MSD.

After graduation, she stated that she intends to pursue a master's degree in family science at UNT. Her plan is to eventually become a Marriage and Relationship Educator.
