Baleigh Whitlock reports from Texas A&M-Commerce that the Office of Hispanic Outreach and Retention hosted a contest to get students’ perspectives on how they perceive, engage with and visualize power. Undergraduate female students on campus were invited to enter the contest, and the winners were Tatiana Chamorro, Erika Woodruff and Kara Saba.
“The photo contest was ‘Images of Power’, so we asked undergraduate women about “how they see power” at our university,” said Dr. Fred Fuentes, assistant dean of Enrollment Management for Hispanic Outreach & Retention. “Tatiana reflected a picture of her with her son, Erika reflected an image of two women engaged in a silent moment and Kara reflected a picture of our university football team.”
“The winners of our Image of Power photo contest were able to travel to a formal dinner with our university leadership. How often do undergraduate students have the opportunity to travel with, engage and have dinner with a university vice president? Three of our university undergraduate women were all treated to such an experience as part of winning the inaugural event. We’re proud of them and excited about the new tradition that they helped us initiate,” Dr. Fuentes said.
