Christina Michelle Jez
A socially conscious individual, Christina Michelle Jez made considerable time in her schedule for charitable activities while a student at Texas A&M University, from which she obtained a BS in Molecular and Experimental Nutritional Sciences. In April 2011, for instance, Ms. Jez helped to secure more than $1,000 in donations for Relay for Life, a national event that supports cancer research and advocacy. Christina Michelle Jez also participated in her school's service-oriented Big Event for four consecutive years; she partnered with community members to clean, complete yard work, and more.
Aside from philanthropic activities, Ms. Jez devotes some of her spare time to competitive running and recently took part in a five-mile race in Dallas. Her preparation, which included several runs every week combined with additional workouts, paid off when she took second place among the runners in her age group.
