Jessica Morales wants to tell you your future – your future in fashion, that is.

The senior textiles and fashion merchandising major from El Paso, Texas, knows a thing or two about trendsetting, and she can’t wait to put her degree to use in the industry to help determine what’s next in what we wear.

Aggies like Jessica are known for blazing trails in their lives and careers, and your support helps make that possible.

Jessica’s studies in the College of Agricultural, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences are preparing her for success. Her career options are as big as the fashion industry itself; she’s interested in becoming everything from a creative director to a personal stylist to a fashion buyer.

Her path toward graduation, however, hasn’t always been easy.

“I was worried I would have to drop out because of my lack of aid,” she said. “By the grace of God I was able to receive scholarships through the Dean’s Excellence Fund, and it helped me so much. I am incredibly thankful.”

In addition to scholarships, the Dean’s Excellence Fund also supports student, faculty and staff development opportunities, as well as access to research data.
