Our very own Dr. Okwonna and Fernando Zuniga on Viva Houston!

Dr. Alexander Okwonna and recent San Jacinto College graduate, Fernando Zuniga, stopped by ABC13 to talk about STEM education and the importance of encouraging more students to consider careers in the STEM disciplines. Fernando paid his way through college, while maintaining a 4.0.

He received numerous scholarships and has been accepted to the University of Houston for the upcoming Fall semester to study mechanical engineering. He’ll first attend a summer internship at Rice University to study biomedical engineering. Read more about his story here.
