Rachel Akouka

Rachel Akouka is a 2024 Northeast Lakeview College graduate and part of the Judson Early College Academy (JECA) program where she will graduate with a high school diploma through Judson ISD and earn an associate degree from Northeast Lakeview College. Graduating with honors, she is active on campus and in her community. At JECA, she was involved in the National Honors Society, the Student-2-Student program, and BexarFest. Rachel also worked with different nonprofit organizations in the San Antonio community to spread their mission through different forms of media. Through her volunteer work, she was inspired to attend UTSA and pursue a career in physical therapy because it would allow her to continue her passion of helping others. Rachel is the valedictorian for JECA and will represent the class of 2024 at their high school graduation later this month.
