Samuel, a sophomore originally from Queretaro, Mexico, chose to attend A&M-Commerce because it was close to home and provided the financial support he needed. 

 

As a Regents Scholar, Sam has enjoyed opportunities to develop his leadership skills and global awareness, skills that will be helpful in his future career. Faculty members like Connie Kercher have significantly impacted Sam’s experience in the classroom by encouraging him to think critically about the world around him. 

 

“A&M-Commerce has offered me a home away from my home,” he said. “I have met so many new people, and through the Regent Scholars Program, I have gained a new world perspective, and developed my leadership skills.”

 

Looking ahead to his sophomore year on campus, Sam looks forward to further developing his leadership skills, and building his network.

“I have survived the first year as a college student, but there are another 3 years to go,” he said. “My plan for these next years is to influence the lives of the people that surround me by setting an example of what a good student is all about, of what it means to be a Regent Scholar, and what it means to be part of A&M-Commerce.”
