It was an honor for South Texas College to recognize Mission Regional Medical Center and the Pharr-San Juan-Alamo Independent School District as Star Supporters of the Valley Scholars Program.

Representatives from Mission Regional say the hospital has employed over 100 STC graduates, primarily in the nursing department, and are always supportive of the programs offered by the college. “Mission Regional has supported STC for many years. We’re happy to partner with STC in any way we can,” said Kennetha Foster, Chief Nursing Officer at Mission Regional Medical Center. “I think education is the key to our future and our community. I have found STC to be very effective and very supportive of their students.”

“We are honored to accept this recognition on behalf of PSJA from South Texas College. STC is a great partner of PSJA and our community, and it means a lot to us to be able to come together and be recognized because of our efforts to offer students opportunities,” said Dr. Narciso Garcia, Deputy Superintendent for PSJA. “It means a lot to be here tonight, and have this be a culmination of all the successes of our students, teachers, administration, school board and superintendent.”
