Success Stories

Alyxes Martinez

Our most recent scholarship winner is Alyxes Martinez! She is currently a senior at Texas Christian University pursuing a degree in Applied Geoscience and will graduate in December of 2019.

She currently works two jobs, one as a bartender on the weekend and the other as a co-op at Freese and Nichols, Inc. Most of her time is focused around studying and staying on track at school. She works between 40 and 50 hours a week to pay for her living expenses. Alyxes and her siblings also helped with their fathers cancer treatment in the past, so she’s successfully navigated a lot of obstacles.

At Freese and Nichols she works in the environmental and coastal group on projects that include groundwater monitoring, methane monitoring, and environmental permitting. After graduation she wants to work for a few years before pursuing a dual master’s degree in environmental science and law. Her ultimate goal is to become an environmental lawyer who works on environmental legislation.

Congratulations to this hard working employee, dedicated student and family caregiver.
