Last month, Rebecca Davila celebrated her eighth year with Texas State Technical College.
After earning her Associate of Applied Science degree in Business Management Technology from TSTC, she knew that she wanted a career in higher education. The Rio Hondo native said that her time as an enrollment coach has been filled with many wonderful memories and, most importantly, she gets to help students along the way.
What inspired you to work in higher education?
My Business Management Technology instructors inspired me. They took such a genuine interest in making sure I succeeded, and that dedication planted the seed in me of wanting to work for TSTC and in higher education.
What do you enjoy most about your career?
I enjoy the camaraderie that I have with my teammates and my supervisors. During my time with TSTC, I have been able to build friendships and create a network of staff and instructors from all over our Texas campuses. We all share a common goal, which is to serve our students in the best way we can.
What is one of the best things about helping students change their lives?
The fact that we are able to play a part in this journey with them is one of the best feelings. Their time at TSTC will not only be able to help them individually, but it will also impact and open doors for their family.
What do you think makes studying at TSTC different from other colleges?
The personalized attention we give our students makes all the difference. I believe that effort
shows the genuine personal interest that I, my teammates and my colleagues take with students who pass through our doors.
