Spring Branch student inducted into Adult Education National Honor Society
Veronica Vazquez-Mota, from Spring Branch, was recently inducted into Harris County Department of Education's National Adult Education Honor Society.
According to a press release, Vazquez-Mota is one of 37 students to be recognized as an adult learner who excelled as a leader despite difficult circumstances.
"Our adult students are dedicated and eager to learn when they come into our classes," Eduardo Honold, adult education director of the Harris County Department of Education, said in the release. "There are so many success stories, and we are honored to educate the 10,000 adults we serve each year."
Vazquez-Mota grew up in a single-parent family in Mexico, being abandoned by her father when she was just 5 years old. In between raising four children of her own and working at a local hospital, she has taken English as a second language classes to better communicate with her children's teachers and has shown leadership skills through organizing PTA meetings and fundraisers at her children's schools.
As an inductee of the honor society, Vazquez-Mota received a pin and certificate, as well as employment and educational advancement recommendations.
"My future plans are many, but the main ones are to work with two languages, earn more money and send my children to a university," Vazquez-Mota said in the release.
