Two College of Business Students Become Bush Fellows
On November 15, Texas A&M University-College Station’s Bush School of Government & Public Service hosted the annual Public Service Institute. This two day Public Service Institute for Texas A&M University System students is offered to students interested in a graduate degree in public or international affairs. During this event students have the opportunity to meet A&M-College Station Bush faculty, staff, and students to learn about the graduate school environment.
This year, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi professor, Dr. Deniz Gevrek nominated Andrew Gorman and Bradley Porras to attend the Institute and become Bush Fellows. Andrew and Bradly are both College of Business economic majors here at the Island University. Dr. Gevrek stated that she nominated both students because, “They are among the best students here at Texas A&M- Corpus Christi, and they have great potential for public service careers.” Gevrek continued stating that, “Andrew and Bradley expressed their interest in the fields of public and international affairs, and wanted to learn more about Master of Public Service & Administration and Master of International Affairs programs offered by Texas A&M University-College Station”.
During this year’s Institute, Andrew and Bradley were able to partake in leadership assessment and problem-solving exercises, learn how to best prepare for the Graduate Record Exam, receive guidance in how to write effective personal statements and resumes, and generally learn more about opportunities in the fields of public service and international affairs.
The Bush School of Government & Public Service’s Public Service Institute is quickly becoming familiar with many Texas A&M-Corpus Christi students. In 2011, Islander alum Robin Elliott became a Bush Fellow and is currently pursuing a Master of Public Service & Administration degree at the Bush School of Government & Public Service, with an expected graduation date of May 2014.
Thank you Andrew Gorman and Bradley Porras for representing Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, and congratulations on this great accomplishment!
