“I believe in helping the environment, education and state pride. To be able to do this on a larger scale would really help deliver this message even further. I love Texas, and want to be an intern to help encourage recycling and educate others to live healthier lifestyles and have pride in their communities,” Ruedas said.
Ruedas is president of The Resident Housing Association at UTPA. The organization developed an eight-week recycling program that was introduced to a Rio Grande Valley elementary school.
