Texas University Students, Faculty Take The Lead in Creating a Better Texas

Photo by Gerd Altman for

Students and faculty of University of Texas are taking the lead and engaging in activities that help make Texas a better place to live.Kelsey Mumford, a nursing and biology major wants to turn nursing towards prevention while Kavya Rajesh, a 20 year old Bachelor of Science student in chemistry and pre-med major wants to prolong the lives of organs by figuring out how to freeze them without damage.
Electrical and computer engineering student Marwan Madi, ’20, wants farmers to be able to more easily make use of drones and reap the benefits of high-tech “precision agriculture.” Ricky Cooks, ’21, a business honors and government student from Texarkana, wants to use his degree to build the economy of Texas and lift local communities. And UT’s McCombs School of Business is helping Vetted, a nonprofit that provides military veterans with business skills they need to scale up and succeed.
The common denominator in all of these stories is a spirit of public service. We say'What starts here changes the world". And for us, the world starts here, starts at home. It starts with Texas.
