BRYAN, Texas — Recruitment efforts for Texas A&M System’s newly established RELLIS Academic Alliance have begun with the addition of two admissions coordinators.
DaNeetra Walker and Cleveland Jones began serving as ambassadors to prospective students and families in the Brazos Valley area earlier today.
Before joining The Texas A&M University System, Walker, a recruiter with experience working with diverse student populations, served as a Senior Regional Advisor for the Texas A&M University Office of Admissions and as a Senior Academic Advisor for the Texas A&M Engineering Academy.
“I want to help students find feasible pathways to achieve their dreams,” Walker said. “I am enthusiastic about the opportunities RELLIS presents to our community, and I am excited to share what sets RELLIS apart from other educational choices.”
Cleveland Jones comes to the RELLIS Campus team from the Texas A&M University Office of Admissions. Jones served as an Admissions Regional Advisor, recruiting and mentoring prospective students from the Brazos Valley region since 2016.
“I believe the programs available through the RELLIS Academic Alliance will open the door of opportunity for many undergraduate and transfer students in both the immediate area and outside of the Brazos Valley region,” Jones said. “An educational journey can be filled with roadblocks, and I look forward to helping students navigate them.”
Walker and Jones will be available to speak to prospective RELLIS students at four information sessions to be held in the Blinn Student Center lobby on the Blinn-Bryan Campus from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the following dates:
• Wednesday, Feb. 7
• Thursday, Feb 15
• Tuesday, Feb 20
• Thursday, March 1
