Manvel grad has a busy summer planned Preparing for college, competing in the Junior Olympics in volleyball and receiving her Gold Award for Girl Scouts are just a few of the things Manvel High School senior Jamie Travis has planned for the summer. “I’m busy,” Travis stated. “I don’t get days off. I don’t take breaks. I have goals, and I will continue to work hard until I achieve those goals.” One of those goals is to become a trauma surgeon. She is starting

that journey by enrolling at Texas Tech University in the fall. When asked about what motivated her to want to become a trauma surgeon, Travis explained, “I volunteered at Memorial Hermann Hospital and worked in the trauma center. I loved helping people who were suffering during the worst times of their lives.” That passion for medicine led her to sign up to take EMT courses at Alvin ISD’s JB Hensler College and Career Academy. “Since I knew I wanted to go to medical school, I thought that taking the EMT classes offered through the college and career academy would help me gain real world experience,” Travis stated. “The course has taught me how to use the equipment, how to load and carry a patient on a stretcher, and other things that will be useful in real life.” Between dual credit and AP exams, Jamie will have already completed her first two years of college before she even steps foot on the Texas Tech campus. “When I get to Tech, I plan on taking the MCAT exam and hope to apply to the Texas Tech

Manvel High School graduate Jamie Travis has a busy summer planned. She will be competing in the Junior Olympics, preparing for college and receiving a Gold Award from the Girl Scouts. University School of Medicine,” Travis said. Medicine isn’t the only thing that Jamie is passionate about. This summer, she will be travelling to California with her club volleyball team and competing in the Junior Olympics. “I have been playing volleyball since I was 10 years old. I think that sports have helped me with important skills like time management,” Travis said. Travis plans on continuing to play club volleyball when she gets to college. As if she wasn’t busy enough, Jamie is also pursuing the Gold Award for Girl Scouts. “We had to complete two projects in order to qualify for the Gold Award,” Travis explained. “For my projects, I incorporated my love of medicine to schedule two events.” For her first event, Jamie set up a tour and question and answer session at the University of Texas Medical School. “I brought over 40 students from Manvel High School,

Shadow Creek High School and Hightower High School to UT Medical School where we toured the building and talked about how to get into medical school,” Travis explained. Her second event was bringing nine medical professionals to Manvel High School to speak to parents and students about how to get into the medical field. “We had about 30 people show up to that event. Some of the leading medical professionals in their field came to speak, and I think that the audience came away with some invaluable information,” Travis said. When asked what motivates her to keep working hard to achieve her goals, Travis said, “My mom really instilled hard work into my head. Every day I write in a notebook. I write what I have to do to be successful and the steps I have to take to get where I want to go.” There is no doubt that Jamie Travis will be able to achieve whatever she sets her mind to.

There is not a greater honor than to be recognized by your peers. “This award is recognition of Mark Twain Elementary, our students and our amazing staff. By recognizing me, you recognize them. “I truly love that I get the opportunity each and every day to make a difference in the lives of so many students and staff members. As an educator, my guiding principle has always been, ‘do what is best for the kids we serve.’ “I am blessed to be in a job that allows me to serve and to continue learning from some of the best administrators and teachers,” Vincent stated. Flowers was assistant principal at Manvel High School for four years, and principal at Wilder Elementary for four years before becoming the principal at Rodeo Palms in 2016. “I am elated to have been honored by my colleagues for the service that I get the opportunity to give to the students and staff of Alvin ISD,” Flowers said.

Both principals were honored at the Region 4 Principal Recognition Ceremony, which took place on April 4 at the Westin Oaks Galleria.

They will also be honored at the Alvin ISD Employee Recognition Ceremony on May 24, along with the campus teachers and paraprofessionals of the year.

During these weeks, Audrey will work tirelessly to compete for a spot in their show or with the company staff.

Audrey has also been accepted into the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Worldwide to pursue a degree in engineering all while continuing her passion for ballet.
