We are pleased to announce that the 2017 recipient of the Spurs Sorority Foundation Grant is Siera Spurlock, a member of the pledge class of 2017 and a junior majoring in biology.
Your donations fund our endowment, which in turn at this point in time funds a single grant, which is then awarded to a Spur active. As our endowment grows, so does our ability to expand our pool of grants to help more deserving young women. Please donate today, or better yet, donate and get your tickets for our 85th Anniversary Gala! But for now, meet Siera:
Hometown and High School: Spring, Texas (Spring High School)
Major: Biology major, Spanish minor
Projected Grad year: 2019
Pledge Class: 2017
Extracurricular Activities: Chemistry club, volunteer at Morningside Ministries
Why did you select Trinity University? I selected Trinity because of the small class sizes and knowing how amazing the professors were.
What kind of plans do you have after graduation (grad school, job)? Medical School to either become a pediatric doctor or a physical therapist for special needs children
What role did the financial aspect of Trinity play in your decision to attend? It played a big part in my decision to attend Trinity. I almost wasn’t able to come because of the cost. Then Trinity found all of these grants for me which allowed me to financially afford it.
What is the most challenging aspect of Trinity? The most challenging aspect of Trinity is how hard the classes are and how the professors expect so much from you. It is well worth it though.
Favorite class or professor or both? My favorite professor is Dr. King. He teaches biology at Trinity. I have taken Cell Systems with him and plan on taking his Vertebrae Physiology class in the spring.
Favorite Spur event? Luv Ya Texas
What do you feel like are the most rewarding things about being a Spur? Having sisters that I can call at any time of the day and know that they will drop what they are doing and talk to me, grab dinner, go on an adventure ect.
There are no ex-Spurs, only Spur-exes. How do you foresee your involvement with Spurs and Trinity after you graduate? I will definitely keep in touch with so many spurs. They are all family to me. When I actually get a job after medical school I would love to help by donating and helping in any way possible.
