Roberto Lopez-Araiza is the recipient of the August 2012 La Prensa Foundation Inspirational Student of the Month award and will receive $500 funded by La Prensa Foundation founded by Amelia and Tino Duran.

Roberto A. Lopez-Araiza was born in Mexico City and with his family’s support and unconditional love, Roberto has come a long way.

He studied elementary and middle school at The Churchill School. This school is part of the International Baccalaureate, an international organization of education that encourages investigation and team work as their core values. The school is also part of the UNESCO and the British Council. Because of this, he grew up in an environment of cooperation and equality in which he had half of his classes in English.

During high school, he attended the Centro Universitario Mexico, voted this year as one of the top 5 best high schools in Mexico. He graduated with a specialization in Physics, Mathematics and Engineering.

He started San Antonio College as an International Student and joined the International Student Association in which he served as Vice-President for one term and volunteered for the American Institute of Architecture Students. He is a current member of the Presidential Honors Program and the Math Engineering and Science Achievement program. He was recently accepted into the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.

He is a current employee of BBVA Compass Bank as a Branch Associate. Mr. Lopez-Araiza was recognized as a top producer for this company on March 28th.

He plans to transfer to UTSA and major in Construction Science and Management and later pursue a Master’s Degree in Architecture.

Once he said “Having the opportunity to reshape the horizon and design the place where people are going to live, work or shop motivates me to give the best of myself in my future projects”. Even though he has set those goals for himself, he recognizes his education and his family as his priorities.

Please help us in congratulating Roberto A. Lopez-Araiza as the Alamo Colleges – La Prensa Foundation Inspirational Student of the Month Award for September 2012
