Student of the Month - June 2014

 Richard Mendez has been named Palo Alto College's Student of the Month for June 2014. Richard is a student at Palo Alto College and has studied both teaching and Turfgrass Management. Read on to learn more about Richard's experience at Palo Alto College.

1. How long have you been at student Palo Alto College? What made you decide to attend?
Total I have been at Palo Alto for four years. I attended two years for my teaching degree but when I change my major from teaching to Turfgrass I came back for Palo Alto for another two years to receive my degree in Turfgrass Management.

2. What has your experience been like at PAC?
My experience at PAC has been a great one. There is an array of functions that the college offers to broaden your knowledge. I had the opportunity to attend The Student Leadership Conference at the University of Houston Clear Lake. That conference not only made me a better person but a better leader in my respected field as well in the Horticulture Club.

3. What are your plans after graduating from PAC?
One day I will be managing a Major League Baseball stadium. I am currently managing the field for the Round Rock Express, Triple A affiliate of the Texas Rangers. Dell Diamond is probably the best Minor League Stadium in the country and we are currently.

4. Tell us something you would like people to know about you?
I will always push my professors and supervisors to their limit. Not in a bad way but in a way that makes them push themselves to strive for greatness. The more they do the more you learn the more your peers learn. I am the older of two children. My sister a senior at Texas A&M San Antonio and will be graduating in December of ’14. I wouldn’t be where and who I am if it wasn’t for the love and support of a family. They are the reason I constantly strive for greatness.

5. What advice would you give a new PAC student?
Never stop learning and never stop challenging yourself. There is always room for improvement. The day you stop learning is the day you stop caring. As much as you think someone doesn’t deserve it, ALWAYS show Grace. You’ll be better for it. Lastly, I will say this, in my line of work, managing dirt and grass on a grander scale of course, “Good or bad someone will always see your work.” So how do you want to be remembered?
