<br /> TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY-KINGSVILLE • SPRING 2012<br /> Don't Just Study<br /> What You Love–Live It!<br /> Message from the president<br /> Being a Javelina means being part of a community. For our students, faculty<br /> and staff, often that involves giving back to the community that surrounds us.<br /> In this issue of Javelina TODAY, we highlight some of the ways we give back<br /> through our research, service learning opportunities and volunteer activities.<br /> For instance, our Communication Sciences and Disorders program provides<br /> both student training and clinical services for the community. Staff members<br /> Frances and Silver Chapa organize the Relay for<br /> Life every year, and this year was bigger and<br /> better than ever. These are just a few of<br /> the stories you'll find and the Javelinas<br /> you'll meet inside this issue.<br /> After you read the magazine, be sure<br /> to visit our online version at<br /> www.javelinatoday.com<br <a title="V02 Issue 1 page 1" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/9db7a97d?page=1"> TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY-KINGSVILLE • SPRING 2012 </a> <a title="V02 Issue 1 page 2" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/9db7a97d?page=2"> Message from the president Being a Javelina mean</a> <a title="V02 Issue 1 page 3" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/9db7a97d?page=3"> INSIDE THIS ISSUE 10 features 6 Living Le</a> <a title="V02 Issue 1 page 4" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/9db7a97d?page=4"> Recent highlights of the university President's P</a> <a title="V02 Issue 1 page 5" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/9db7a97d?page=5"> Dr. Thomas Krueger, director of research and prof</a> <a title="V02 Issue 1 page 6" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/9db7a97d?page=6"> COVER story </a> <a title="V02 Issue 1 page 7" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/9db7a97d?page=7"> Lisa Marie Gonzales-Hatfield is th</a> <a title="V02 Issue 1 page 8" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/9db7a97d?page=8"> JAVELINA profile TEXAS' TEJANO STORY Javelina</a> <a title="V02 Issue 1 page 9" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/9db7a97d?page=9"> Miss Texas A&M University- Kingsville 2012 Sarah</a> <a title="V02 Issue 1 page 10" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/9db7a97d?page=10"> FEATURE Y ou may not expect it</a> <a title="V02 Issue 1 page 11" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/9db7a97d?page=11"> Trumpet Creeper Vine except one small region in</a> <a title="V02 Issue 1 page 12" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/9db7a97d?page=12"> STUDENT focus ARCHER of the YEAR </a> <a title="V02 Issue 1 page 13" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/9db7a97d?page=13"> Freshman Chooses Education Over Junior Olympic Te</a> <a title="V02 Issue 1 page 14" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/9db7a97d?page=14"> STUDENT focus JAMES DINN </a> <a title="V02 Issue 1 page 15" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/9db7a97d?page=15"> “It made me understand that, yes, I may be comin</a> <a title="V02 Issue 1 page 16" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/9db7a97d?page=16"> Dr. Jingbo Louise Liu, left, James Dinn, center, </a> <a title="V02 Issue 1 page 17" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/9db7a97d?page=17"> L A NA ODA AVE NA </a> <a title="V02 Issue 1 page 18" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/9db7a97d?page=18"> FEATURE At the undergraduate level</a> <a title="V02 Issue 1 page 19" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/9db7a97d?page=19"> “We help make them better able to cope and provid</a> <a title="V02 Issue 1 page 20" href="https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/9db7a97d?page=20"> A MOMENT WITH AN EXPERT Dr. Richard E.
