The SSTAA President, Elsye Rodriguez, and the alumni board met with Ms. Cammie Bonilla on Thursday to discuss a new collaboration to bring a new alumni chapter to SST Corpus Christi. This new chapter will allow new and previous SST seniors to receive guidance on how to prepare for college and provide connections with graduates. SSTAA will help create the framework of how this alumni chapter will operate, such as creating scholarships and connecting students with graduates attending the same colleges.
“This is an exciting opportunity for students at the Corpus Christi campuses. It allows them to not be scared about going to college and even pumps them to go. College can be an intimidating experience if you feel like you’re alone, but by knowing there’s another SST Alumni who can help guide you, it makes the transition easier in every way.” -SSTAA President, Elsye Rodriguez
SSTAA plans to launch this new alumni program starting next semester, Fall 2019, and work with SST Corpus Christi and their outreach coordinator, Ms. Cammie Bonilla, on creating this new and exciting program. The SST Alumni Association chapter at Corpus Christi will create pathways to connect with SST Alumni attending local colleges such as Texas A&M Corpus Christi, Del Mar College, and others to help SST Corpus Christi seniors transition.
