Demetrius, a senior marketing major, came to Texas A&M University-Commerce because it was the perfect environment for him to prepare for the business world. An hour and a half from his hometown, A&M-Commerce has provided Demetrius with an excellent, all-around campus experience from student life to quality classes conducive to future success.
In the classroom, one of his most influential teachers was Jennifer Flanagan, a business instructor, whom Demetrius said was energetic, always there for her students, and had an energy and charisma that mirrored that campus as a whole.
As a member of the A&M-Commerce track and field team, Demetrius has gained valuable life experience on and off the track that will help him achieve his career goals in marketing and in life in general.
“I feel like track, or any other sport, teaches you to be a leader, which is very important inside the business world,” Demetrius said. “It teaches you to be competitive, which is an asset in the real world because it’s not easy out there.”
After graduation, Demetrius plans to work for the marketing team of a magazine or sports team like the Dallas Mavericks or Cowboys, with dreams of working his way up to CEO.
“As a business-minded person, I am confident that the foundation I received at A&M-Commerce will help me achieve my career goals.”
