Anthony Wildcat Class of 2012 Presents Research on Capital Hill


Anthony ISD Wildcat alumni Cecilia Hinojosa was among 60 college graduates invited to the nation’s capitol in Washington D.C. to present their research to Congress.

Her research, centered around the effects of nicotine addiction and diabetes, shows that individuals with diabetes have a harder time quitting smoking than those without diabetes.

Cecilia attributes much of her success to the education she received while attending Anthony ISD.

“My education at Anthony ISD really gave me the skills needed to study effectively and achieve my goals. The teachers and staff really foster a desire to further yourself academically.”

-Cecilia Hinojosa, AISD Class of ’12

In addition to earning her B.A. in psychology at the University of Texas at El Paso, Cecilia will further her education in the experimental psychology doctoral program at Tufts University in Medford Massachusetts, where she will be conducting neuroimaging studies on PTSD.
