On Friday, May 6th, Bianca Vanessa Arceo Orozco, a first-generation Mexican-American student, will cross the stage at the Alabama Theater and graduate from Jefferson State. During her time at Jefferson State, Bianca served as the Ambassadors President and was part of many other student organizations.
She will receive her Associates of Science and will continue her education at The University of Alabama at Birmingham. She will pursue a bachelor’s degree in Biology/Pre-Dental track to enter the school of dentistry and become a dentist as she always dreamed. Congratulations on your graduation, Bianca, and best wishes for your next adventure!
In Bianca’s Own Words:
“Jefferson State helped me see my virtues, hard work does not go unrecognized here at Jeff State and I have been able to become a well-rounded student,” said Orozco. “I am the student body president of the ambassador program and if there is something I have learned from this, it is how to develop better leadership skills as well as always be active on campus and represent Jeff State by being myself and showing the diversity at the college.”
“I selected Jefferson State because I believed it was the perfect transition after high school and for going on to a four-year college,” said Orozco. “It was the best decision I could have ever taken. I am grateful for all the support and care Jeff State gives to their students. I hope to serve as an inspiration for many students, but especially to the Latino community.”
