Tabitha Garcia
Our Lady of the Lake University
I would like to serve the students of Sigma Zeta by voicing their ideas and suggestions on how to improve this wonderful community by representing them in the Executive Council. I understand the importance of evaluating challenges and proposals for the benefit of the students. I am also prepared to express the concerns and input of the student members. I am submitting this nomination because I know that I can fulfill and exceed the responsibilities and duties required of this position. I want to play a bigger role in helping to shape this community which consists of this nation’s emerging scholars, innovators, and leaders. I would be grateful for the opportunity to serve this community that has recognized my academic achievements and that supports countless others in their journey towards higher science and mathematics education.

While I do not hold any officer positions in Sigma Zeta I have had leadership roles and experiences in other clubs and organizations. I was Secretary of the Chemistry Club at Our Lady of the Lake University. I founded a STEM club at my high school. I served as its first president and that same year we received a robotics grant that opened the doors to a robotics team and hosting numerous state-wide competitions. My strong work ethic has allowed me to achieve dean’s list every semester of my undergraduate career and to be invited to join Alpha Chi National College Honor Society. I will be attending the Sigma Zeta National Convention in March where I expect to gain valuable experience and insight into how Sigma Zeta operates on a national scale. If selected I would work to diligently serve students who are the backbone of this community.
