August 2013 - Student of the Month

La Prensa Foundation Inspirational Student of the Month Award - August 2013

Hecdris Collier
Major: Physical Therapy Assistant
GPA: 3.95
St. Philip’s College 

Hecdris Collier is the recipient of the August 2013 La Prensa Foundation Inspirational Student of the Month award and will receive $500 funded by La Prensa Foundation founded by Amelia and Tino Duran.

Hecdris Collier is a second year Physical Therapy Assistant Student at St. Philip’s College. Her expected graduation date is May 2014. Her outstanding academic record of 3.95 GPA afforded Ms. Collier an invitation into the Psi Kappa Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society at St. Philip’s College. She is an active member who has given back to the college and the community. She has volunteered at the Davidson Respite House, Spurs Sports & Entertainment, Relay for Life, and Culture Fest to name a few. She is also involved with the Student Leadership Institute.

Ms. Collier has been honored as a Presidential Scholar, a TStem Scholar, and most recently a Nancy Hurd Scholar. As a TStem Scholar, she represented the college by volunteering at a Girls Inc. student fair at Rackspace. She was also selected to represent the college at the Dr. Lonnie B. Mitchell HBCU Behavioral Health Policy Academy to bring awareness to mental health.

She is a full time student, mother of a five year old girl, and wife. Her commitment to academic success has been facilitated by her ability to utilize scholarship funds, work study earnings, and the financial support provided by Project Quest, a nonprofit organization which pays for tuition and related expenses for the advancement of San Antonio residents. Her participation in these programs has allowed her the opportunity to develop a network of mentors, friends, and a support group who value hard work and commitment towards personal greatness.
