    How was your Early College experience?
    Wonderful, my teachers saw potential in me since elementary and cared for me from that day on. Being a part of this opportunity has been a gratifying experience, and I have gained much knowledge on how college life works for the most part. The amount of time and money that I have saved here is going to help my future immensely.

    What would you say to your PSJA Family?
    Thank you, you have been a significant part of my life. I hope you continue to take the same thoughtfulness you have shown us to other students. We are the future, thank you for always caring. 

    What would be your message for underclassmen?
    Start early and get good grades so you can be placed in rigorous classes that will help you. Be ready to be responsible and manage priorities. Lastly, choose a degree you see the most potential in.
