Family Campaign UTEP

 Jessica Hanna

Supporting a Campus That Gives Back to Its Students

Jessica Hanna started working as a coordinator for the Miner Athlete Academic Center (MAAC) in 2013. Excited to make an impact in the lives of students, she joined the UTEP Family Campaign. The Campaign is made up of UTEP faculty and staff who give back to the University. Hanna is enthusiastic about helping and believes her contributions, along with those of others, help students and programs across campus receive the funding they need to succeed.
As a student, Jessica experienced firsthand the impact that these funds have in helping students further their college career. Hanna relied on small scholarships to purchase books, supplies and to provide support for participation in academic activities. “Sometimes students just need an extra $50 or $100 to cover conference fees or academic extracurricular fees. Our monthly contributions are minimal compared to the experiences those activities provide to students while they pursue their academic goals.” Jessica hopes that her contribution can make a difference by helping a student buy books, or go on a study abroad trip that will positively impact their future.  “When it comes to contributing to a student’s education, all gifts can make a difference.”
