Miss Texas College

Miss Texas College
Posted By: Reggie Culpepper on July 28, 2015

As the demographics of Texas College continues to evolve, so is the student leadership of the oldest higher education institution in Tyler, Texas.  On Friday, April 24th, students and a panel  of  judges  selected  Paloma  Bermudez  as  Miss  Texas  College  for  the  2015-2016 academic term. Bermudez is the first Hispanic Miss Texas College representative in the institution’s history.  Over the past three years, the College’s Hispanic student population averages at 11.7% and shows growth annually.


Miss  Paloma  Bermudez  is  a  junior,  criminal  justice  major  from  Brownsville,  TX.  She aspires to become an attorney following graduation from Texas College. Bermudez ran a campaign centered on diversity and inclusion of students of multiple ethnicities. A smiling face on campus, Bermudez is well liked by many who cross her path.



 


Paloma is the proud daughter of Francisco and Blanca Bermudez. She was introduced to Texas College in 2006 when her brothers pursued their degrees while playing on the men’s soccer  team.  “Attending  Texas  College  only  seemed  natural;  TC  has  become  a  family tradition,” stated Bermudez in a recent interview. An athlete in her own right, Paloma is the Captain of the Lady Steers Soccer Team. She is also President of the Spanish Club and AVID peer tutor.  She has been recognized as an Honor Roll Scholar for her 3.7 cumulative GPA for the past three semesters. Her demonstration of academic excellence led to her    
selection as a 2015 LEGACY Scholarship recipient.


In her down time, Paloma enjoys spending time with her family, working on her family’s farm and staying fit. When we ask our new queen what she believes in, she simply states, “I believe in my heavenly Father, God, and that all things are possible through Him and with Him.”
