On April 5-8, at the annual Texas Junior College Student Government Association (TJCSGA) conference in Austin, Rebecca McAdoo was named Student of the Year.  

McAdoo has attended Midland College for the past two years.  She is the daughter of Yolanda and Bruce McAdoo.  The family has lived in Midland since relocating from West Palm Beach, FL, when Rebecca was 6.  She attended MISD schools and graduated from Lee High School in 2016.

On Friday, May 11, Rebecca McAdoo will graduate from MC with an Associate of Arts degree and plans to major in Mass Communications at Texas State University. 

During the 2017-2018 academic year, McAdoo served as president of MC’s Student Government Association and also as president of MC’s Students in Philanthropy organization.  She also serves as vice president of the Texas Region 1 Student Government Association.

"Rebecca has proven to be a true student leader,” said Taneekwa Hurdle, MC Student Activities coordinator.  “Her commitment to service, student government and community well-being stand as an example to other students.” 

McAdoo routinely writes news articles and editorials for the Midland College student publication, the MC Press.  In addition, McAdoo is an important part of MC’s recruiting efforts and assists with college tours and promoting Midland College to high school seniors in her capacity as a member of the MC Regents.  She is also an active member in Sigma Kappa Delta English Honor Society.

McAdoo said that her future aspirations include handling public relations for a nonprofit organization.  She currently works part-time as the chapter administrator for the Permian Basin Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals.  As such, she assists the volunteer board with duties and programs to enhance nonprofit agencies, designs chapter advertising and coordinates planning for the National Philanthropy Day celebration.

“Rebecca is an outspoken leader, who is not afraid of taking charge,” said Luz Lopez, MC Students in Philanthropy coordinator.  “She has definitely made an impact at MC by leading multiple clubs and being involved in most of the student activities. Her enthusiasm for the work she does is extremely contagious; I have no doubt she will continue to thrive in her future endeavors.”
