Happy Belated #GenTX Day!

Yesterday, we celebrated our advocacy for higher ed in the State of Texas🏇 by sharing our college shirts on 📳social media ~ great timing before my school trip today!

This raised my awareness that I’ve been showing team spirit📢 a great deal lately!

Our Lady of the Lake University ~ where I’m finishing my PhD🎓 

Duke University ~ for Coach K‘s 5th NCAA🏆

 

 Texas Lutheran University ~ whose basketball🏀 team won the SCAC  

Cisco College ~ where I teach speech🎤 before my R.E. 💒 

Since I’m still surveying Texas student-athletes for my dissertation, NCAA players in the Southland Conference (Division I), Lone Star Conference (Division II), Southern Collegiate Athletics Conference (Division III) and NAIA Red River Conference can participate here!

As both an educator (college professor, religious education teacher, private tutor) and a student (to finish my doctoral degree this year and had a call to confirm my dissertation chair this week ~ to defend and become DOCTOR this ☼summer☼ then walk this fall) who can empathize with my own students, this ♣spring♣ semester thus far already has made waves!

This RGV press release 📰 about my summer🌅 speech class in South Texas🌴 reminds me of the skills that my students practiced that still are required to succeed in my own PhD📜!

As another year approaches, I can’t just sit back, wait and wonder: will this be my year? First of all, I have faith🙏 that GOD☝️ determines the fate. I can do what is within my control, and like my students, I can strive to produce high-quality work! Struggle and sacrifice will be worth the price!

Almost exactly two years ago when I attended 🎆New Year’s🎇 Mass💒, our Deacon spoke🎤 of the difference between wishful💭 and resolved👊 thinking. While I can wish all I want to graduate🎓, I must move forward once I resolve to take whatever steps👣 necessary to make progress!
