Congratulations to Joseph Panalez, a senior business administration major and today’s Hercules Scholarship winner. After graduating from Texas College, Joseph plans to obtain his master’s degree from the University of Houston while working.
Joseph is a member of the Texas College baseball team and the Honda Campus All Star Challenge team. He also volunteers in many community service projects with the baseball team.
Joseph is most influenced by his parents who, he says, have taught him to work hard, be respectful and grateful.
Joseph lives by the motto:
Don’t measure life on how many years you live, but instead on how you lived those years. – Gabriel Iglesias
