Meet Maria: Amarillo College's Most Promising Student
Jacob Gray, In the Know With ACCT
Amarillo College President Russell Lowery-Hart refers to his school's typical student as “Maria." She’s female, first-generation, attends classes part time, and works two jobs. While she may have little in common with students who attended Amarillo College two decades ago, she is smart and determined and committed to bettering her future through higher education.
In this podcast, Lowery-Hart explains how getting to know Maria—and understanding what it takes to propel her to success—has transformed his institution.
