Ellie Smith My name is Ellie Smith and I am a senior finance major with a concentration in real estate in the Rawls College of Business. I am from Houston, Texas and am the 17th member of my family to attend Texas Tech. I am the Vice President of Administration for my sorority, Pi Beta Phi, and serve as a Rawls College of Business Ambassador and as a Chancellor’s Ambassador. I am a member of Order of Omega honor society and Rho Lambda honor society as well. I was also able to study abroad in Florence, Italy the summer after my sophomore year! That was definitely an experience I will never forget and am so thankful Texas Tech granted me a once in a lifetime opportunity to study abroad. The summer after my sophomore year I interned with Cushman & Wakefield and the summer after my junior year I interned with NewQuest Properties, both commercial real estate companies in Houston, Texas. After college, I plan on either attending law school or pursuing a career in the commercial real estate industry.

Riley Earnest My name is Riley Earnest and I am a senior Supply Chain Management major from Plains, Texas. I am a member of President’s Select, Sigma Phi Lambda, the Rawls Business Leadership Program, and Tech Supply Chain Association. In addition to this, I currently work in Texas Tech’s Football Training Facility and volunteer with Kids Beach Club of Lubbock. Growing up a life-long Red Raider, I have especially enjoyed getting to serve families, distinguished alumni, and potential students through President’s Select. I absolutely love getting to give tours and meet new people! This summer, I am participating in Texas Tech’s Congressional Internship Program. I am currently working in the office of Mike Conaway – the representative of District 11 in Texas and House Agriculture Committee Chairman. As an intern, I have had the chance to complete research projects, attend high-profile hearings, and participate in a weekly debate series that has allowed me to articulate my stances on a variety of different issues. After I graduate this spring, I hope to attend law school to pursue a career in education law.

Brian Rodriguez My name is Brian Rodriguez, and I'm a senior from Lubbock studying Clinical Laboratory Sciences.

Shelby White My name is Shelby White, and I am a senior Mechanical Engineering major with a minor in mathematics from Plano, Texas. I plan to graduate with honors in December 2018. I am a member of President’s Select and serve as a Chancellor’s Ambassador. I am also a senator for the College of Engineering through the Student Government Association. I have been elected to serve in this position two years in a row and I am apart of the Academics Committee. During my junior year, I served as the Vice President of Philanthropy for my sorority, Pi Beta Phi, which was one of my most memorable leadership positions I have held during my college career. Community service is something that I feel very passionate about and I feel so fortunate to have been able to serve in this role! This past semester I received an internship position in Dallas with L3 Technologies where I have been doing a Co-Op since January as a designer. This has been one of the best opportunities Texas Tech has provided me with because it has made me appreciate my major even more and has confirmed that I am doing exactly what I should be. Throughout college, I have enjoyed participating in a variety of student organizations including the Society of Women Engineers, Order of Omega, Rho Lambda, Gamma Beta Phi, and Women in Business. After College, I plan to either attend Law School and do patent law or continue to pursue a career in the aerospace industry.
