Zayra Gomez '19
Zayra Gomez '19, an early childhood education major, is the recipient of the Nell Blakney Evans Memorial Scholarship. She plans to teach elementary school after graduation. Zayra is a member of the women's tennis team, a resident assistant, and a member of Delta Beta Epsilon. "I love McMurry because it's my home. I have found my family and where I'm meant to be," said Zayra.
In a letter to scholarship donors, Zayra said, "I am writing you to express my everlasting gratitude for scholarship you made possible. I pay for my schooling myself, so this award means more to me than I can express. I am a junior this year and your gift has made the finish line a more visible goal for me. I have found my passion for teaching at McMurry University and plan on graduating with a Bachelor's degree in early childhood education and teaching in grades K-6. I have found lifelong friendships and learned things that would not have been possible if it weren't for McMurry and your financial help. I thank you for providing me the help that my parents cannot. I hope one day I can provide the aid for future McMurry students that you have provided for me."
