Marcia Banegas was raised in Fort Worth, Texas and graduated from The University of Texas at Austin in May of 2019 with a B.A. in Geography and a minor in Latin American Studies. Ms. Banegas was fortunate enough to have great resources during high school that helped her navigate through the college application process. She hopes to be that same resource for students at Akins and support them as they pursue the path to higher education.
