May 2000, Monika Galvan graduated from Harlingen CISD as a Tech Prep Texas Scholar.
She subsequently applied for, and received, a $4,000 Dr. Lauro F. Cavazos Tech
Prep Scholarship to Texas State Technical College. Galvan states,
was very interested when my counselor mentioned some things known as “career pathways.”
I thought that this was the key to getting that head start that my parents always
told me to take. I . . . wanted to enter into the medical field . . . [and am]
. . . thankful for all the help I have received.”
who currently serves as a student member of the Tech Prep Board of Directors,
