Chapter Voices • Texas State Technical College:
Student Veterans of America recognizes the achievements of the chapter at the Texas State Technical College. Over the past two years, the Veteran Student Alliance Club (VSAC) at Texas State Technical College in Harlingen, TX has been awarded “Service Project of the Year”, “Club of the Year”, and “Advisor of the Year”.
Now Chapter President Maria Rincon became a member of the club in 2014 and has continued her SVA Chapter’s dedication to service in their community.

Every semester, VSAC holds at least two fundraisers and two service projects. One such fundraiser, a car show, raised enough money VSAC to award three $300 scholarships to deserving student veterans on their campus. One of the service projects involved cleaning up a local cemetery and placing flags on the graves of veterans buried there. Another service project involves, VSAC collecting and donating school supplies to benefit local school districts in need. The SVA Chapter at Texas State Technical College in Harlingen looks forward to forging stronger bonds with non-veteran students on their campus in the coming semester. Their dedication to service embodies the values of Student Veterans of America and demonstrates the impact that student veterans united in purpose can have in their communities and upon one another. SVA Chapter President Maria Rincon says of her decision to get involved with her SVA Chapter, “I love my chapter. They have done a lot for me, to be honest I don't think that I would be this successful if it wasn't for all the help they provided. I am not the only one, there are many like myself.
