Brittany Withers, a senior at Stockdale High School in Stockdale, plans to attend UHV to do two things.

She wants to play on the UHV Jaguars women’s golf team and study to be a teacher.

Withers first discovered golf after she injured her ankles during track her freshman year. When she was asked to try out golf, she wound up shooting a 91 during her first tournament. The coach told her that she should stay on the golf team.

Along with sports, she also is a member of several student organizations like Student Council, Future Farmers of America, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and Family, Career and Community Leaders of America.

The University of Houston-Victoria, located in the heart of the Coastal Bend region since 1973 in Victoria, Texas, offers courses leading to more than 80 academic programs in the schools of Arts & Sciences; Business Administration; and Education, Health Professions & Human Development. UHV provides face-to-face classes at its Victoria campus, as well as an instructional site in Katy, Texas, and online classes that students can take from anywhere. UHV supports the American Association of State Colleges and Universities Opportunities for All initiative to increase awareness about state colleges and universities and the important role they have in providing a high-quality and accessible education to an increasingly diverse student population, as well as contributing to regional and state economic development.
