Outstanding UNM Taos TRiO-SSS Graduate!
Gina Cordova graduated with both her Certificate in Human Services and an Associate of Liberal Arts from UNM-Taos. Gina successfully transferred to New Mexico Highlands University in Fall 2016 and is pursuing a Bachelor of Social Work.
Gina’s long-term goal is to earn a Master of Arts in Social Work and have a career serving youth and families as a social worker. Gina has persevered thru adversity to not only accomplish her goals in the classroom but also as a mother and community member. While at UNM-Taos, Gina held a leadership position in Phi Theta Kappa, an honor society for community college students, and under her leadership PTK implemented a clothing drive to provide resources to families in need. Gina is working toward her academic goals while becoming a change agent in her community.
Gina’s hard work in and out of the classroom was rewarded as she earned the MANA del Norte Scholarship and PTK NM All-State Academic Team Scholarship. ¡Felicidades Gina! We are proud of you!
