Ruby Navarronavarro

Ruby Navarro graduated from Harlingen High School South in May of 2010, and quickly fit into the college life as a full-time student at Texas A&M University-Kingsville (TAMUK). Ruby has always been committed to being a high scholastic achiever and enjoys participating in many extracurricular activities. She is a great model for the Javelina spirit as a member of the dance team, The Sapphires. She is also active in the TAMUK Aggie Club, TAMUK Collegiate FFA, and serves as a USDA-HSI Peer Mentor, a role that she takes seriously. Along with other Peer Mentors, Ruby mentors beginning college students to help them improve their study habits, learning experiences, and social skills. Ruby also volunteers at vet clinics and humane societies, and hopes that her hard work and dedication will help her reach her ultimate goal of becoming a veterinarian. Ruby is inspired by a quote by Mary Kay Ash—“Don't limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as you mind lets you. What you believe, you can achieve.”
