McDermott Signature Luncheon Event

Apply Now!

I know you all remember when you applied for the McDermott Program way back when.  Now encourage the other great applicants to send in their applications!  I don’t think the application is with pen and paper any more like it used to be. Onward and upward!

Good luck to all who are applying.  The McDermott Scholars Program is a lifetime adventure!

Whoosh for Friday!

Love jack looking lovely

Looks like the love jack has been given a fresh paint job.  It’s looking lovely!   I’m sure we all have lots of good memories of walking past it on the way to class.

Happy Weekend!

McDermott Alumna to Austin City Limits

Dionna Budd ’08 and a friend were checking out the Austin City Limits festival last weekend and were snapped by the Houston Press photographer.

DionnaOf course, I had to check in to see how Dionna was doing.  Here’s an update:

I’m currently living in Houston. I teach sixth grade math at a Title I school, Christa McAuliffe Middle School. We are 86% economically disadvantaged. I am team lead for sixth grade math and serve as one of our school’s intervention leaders, coordinating programs and activities for our failing students. I do Crossfit and run in my spare time, and I still have the world’s cutest dog. I am trying to hit up the music festival circuit whenever my schedule allows.
