Medical school scholarship program
selects seven Texas State students
By David King
Seven Texas State University-San Marcos students have been chosen for a statewide program that provides scholarships for them to finish college and then attend medical school.
This is the first time Texas State has had more than one student chosen for the Joint Admission Medical Program, which was launched in 2003 to help academically talented students from economically challenged backgrounds go to medical school.
“It’s a huge accomplishment,” said Marilyn Banta, who joined with fellow Biology Department faculty member Carolyn Pesthy to recruit students for JAMP. “We can take some of the credit for getting the word out, but the students have to get the grades and the students have to interview. They get the vast majority of the accolades that go along with it.”
The seven Texas State students selected for the next JAMP cohort are:
- Leslie Campbell (Goodrich)
- Casey Finch (Katy)
- Brad Kapten (Flower Mound)
- Olivia Lust (Austin)
- Eric Madden (San Antonio)
- Joshua Sands (Georgetown)
- Derek Selders (Houston)
Two other students, Karla Martinez of Seguin and Valeria Onzures of San Elizario, were chosen as alternates. They will be admitted to the program if space becomes available. Continue reading
