Mexican Consulate Recognizes EPCC Students

El Paso Community College (EPCC) students named Siemens Technical Scholars earlier this year were honored by the Mexican Consulate in El Paso.

Consul General of Mexico in El Paso, Marcos Bucio welcomed students Bryant Muñiz, Lizet Navarro and Adrian Morales to his office for a ceremony where the students shared their educational experience and pride in their Mexican heritage.

“El Paso Community College’s programs of excellence are important to Mexico,” Bucio said. “The Siemens Technical Scholar Awards show the academic quality that the college has and we are proud to work together.”

EPCC received five of the 51 scholarships awarded nationwide by Siemens. Muñiz, Navarro and Morales are current students majoring in Medical Imaging Technology-Radiology. Other scholarship recipients, Javier Casillas and Angelica Muñoz, are recent graduates.

“Without a doubt, I think being in this EPCC program, we are the most prepared students here in the Southwest,” Bryant Muñiz said. “The program prepares us for our registry, so we go into clinics feeling confident knowing exactly what we’re doing.”

The Siemens Technical Scholars Program recognizes exemplary community college STEM programs, like EPCC, that deliver exceptional training for technical STEM jobs in areas ranging from power plant technology to healthcare and awarded scholarships to students.
