Scholar of the Week

Jasmine Lucero      
The University of Texas at Arlington

Born to a Salvadoran father who fled the Central American country’s violent civil war, and a Mexican mother who came to the United States looking for better opportunities, Jasmine Lucero learned from them the need for practicality and compassion.

Although her parents did not attend college, their tireless efforts to provide for their children inspired Jasmine to pursue higher education. After high school, she decided to enroll at the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) to major in industrial engineering – a degree she is expected to complete this spring.
Described as an enthusiastic and active student, Jasmine has set goals to improve her leadership skills and become more involved with the Hispanic community. She has shown a continuous interest in learning and a great commitment in achieving her academic ambitions. Jasmine is actively involved in various on campus activities as well as church activities. She served as Community Outreach Chair for Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) and more recently was selected as Vice President of UTA local chapter. Jasmine has also served as a College Captain for Great Minds in STEM’s Viva Technology program.
Jasmine is a 2015 HENAAC Scholar, whose stellar work ethic was recognized with a $1,000 Davila/Treviño Memorial Scholarship in memory of David Davila and Joe Treviño.
