Read on to learn more about who they are and what they're doing!
Ashley Alaniz-Moyer '14
Three years after earning her Bachelor of Communication Studies, Ashley decided she wanted to continue her education. She knew she wanted to earn her MBA, but she wasn’t sure where she should go. Completing her Master of Business Administration at Concordia prepared her for leadership roles by helping to fine-tune her management skills and giving her real world experience, such as a capstone project with Student Loan Genius. Now, she is serving as the Executive Director of the Hispanic Scholarship Consortium, where she oversees financial, program and development activities.
Anthony Rodriguez '17
I went to Concordia to experience the small class sizes and personal interaction with my classmates and professors. As a result of my experiences at CTX, I am able to take the skills from the classroom and apply them in my role as a Jr. Account Manager for my clients. Concordia gave me all the opportunities of a larger university, with the personal interaction.
Ann Robinson '11
For Lake Travis ISD administrator Ann Robinson, Concordia’s Master of Education program was perfect for a working teacher who needed convenience and flexibility while still receiving a high-quality education. Within a small classroom environment, Ann gained lifelong friendships and colleagues through cohort groups. She was able to do so in a financially reasonable manner with courses taught by impressively qualified professors with real world experience. Ann is now taking the world by storm as a Lake Pointe Elementary assistant principal.
Manny Alarcon '14
For CTX alumnus Manny Alarcon, the road to graduation was a winding one, beginning in 2005 and concluding in 2014. He credits his perseverance, in part, to Concordia's supportive and encouraging faculty and staff, who helped him stay the course through to the completion of his degree. Manny found that his education especially the helpful and practical upper level courses helped him to understand the business world in a new and ultimately better light. His degree also helped him to ascend the ranks of his company, of which he is now Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
Deanna Doering '15
Deanna wanted a small college experience in which she could feel free to ask questions and develop a tight-knit community. She loved being able to have one-on-one conversations with her professors so that she was able to thoroughly understand her nursing courses. She credits CTX with giving her confidence and challenging her to strive to do the very best in all she does. Now Deanna is a full time registered nurse on the orthopedic and trauma floor of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in Altoona, PA, and works as a volunteer firefighter at Alpha Fire Company in State College, PA!
