Ag Council: Chamonix Mejia named September 'Aggie of the Month'
Name: Chamonix Mejia; Major: Agricultural Communications; Classification: Senior; Organization: Sigma Alpha; Hometown: Laredo; Month: September
Chamonix Mejia, a senior agricultural communications major from Laredo, received Texas Tech's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources Ag Council September 'Aggie of the Month.' Mejia said that to be recognized among the best students in the college on behalf of Sigma Alpha is an honor that allows her to continue a family tradition.
"There are so many deserving students in the college, but to be named an Aggie is really the cherry on top of my undergraduate career," Mejia said. "The honor of being named Aggie of the Month meant I was able to keep up the family tradition, and it means I am making my family proud."
As well as being heavily involved in Sigma Alpha, Mejia can be found in many other organizations across campus. After graduation in December, Mejia plans to pursue a Master of Science in Agricultural Communications. Following the completion of this degree, she hopes to work for a state or federal natural resources agency focusing on public affairs or communication.
She said that the endless opportunities Texas Tech and CASNR provide are what led her to attend Tech. CASNR's small college atmosphere and tradition appealed to Mejia when choosing her degree.
"The college has a family type atmosphere, and that really hits home," Mejia said. "After losing my mother last semester, CASNR came together to show me support, whether it was through the Student Success Center, clubs and organizations, and my professors."
