    Congratulations to Dr. LaToya Gilmore for earning a “40 Under 40” award from Prairie View A&M University based on her accomplishments as an emerging leader who has blazed a trail in her field.

    Prairie View’s 40 under 40 award recognizes 40 alumni under the age of 40 who use their experience at Prairie View to impact communities. “Our motto is ‘Prairie View Produces Productive People’ and being in this inaugural class is a tremendous honor,” Dr. Gilmore said.

    Dr. Gilmore has indeed blazed a trail in her field. She earned a bachelor’s degree in less than four years from Prairie View, transferred to Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California where she earned a master’s of science in marriage and family therapy. While studying at Fuller, she participated in mission work in Africa along with six other female graduate students. The students assisted communities and visited schools throughout Uganda.

    After graduating from Fuller, she worked as a family therapist in Compton, California for a non-profit organization prior to moving to Houston. Through other non-profit organizations, she provided in-home therapeutic services and education in communities around the city of Houston, including Sunnyside, Alief, Fifth Ward, Baytown, and Pasadena before beginning her teaching tenure at San Jacinto College.

    She has also presented and facilitated programs at professional conferences across the state of Texas. During her doctoral studies at Texas Southern University, she was a member of Chi Sigma Iota Honor Society, later graduating magna cum laude.

    In addition to teaching Learning Framework at the North Campus, she serves as a mentor and faculty advisor.

    Dr. Gilmore holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Prairie View, a master’s in marriage and family therapy from Fuller, and a doctor of education in counselor education from TSU.
