STC Ascender Club Hosts Fundraiser and Elects Officers

By Intern Aly Ceballos

The Ascender Club at the Starr County Campus organized a fundraiser for the Fall 2023 semester. The earnings from the sale of Nothing Bundt Cakes will be used to pay for the Noche de Familia event on November 9. Club members sold about 300 cakes and made a profit of close to $900. Ascender student, Ross Guerra, sold 50 Nothing Bundt Cakes all by herself. Ross has been in the Ascender program for 2 years. She said that she loves the Ascender’s program since it’s helped her develop not only as a student, but also as a person.  “I was amazed at the way the students took over and distributed the orders. Everyone did their part and their teamwork really paid off,” commented Dr. Anna A. Alaniz. “I am so proud to lead these students because they are dedicated inside and outside of the classroom.” The Ascender Club also has new officers: President- Consuelo Trejo; Vice-President- Jazmine Lozano;  Secretary- Itzel Pena; Treasure- Annette Garza; and  Historian- Joanna Aleman.
