Student Educational Opportunity Coordinator

Office: UU443 
lurquijo@uwyo.edu

Native of Juárez, Mexico, graduated from Springer High School. I then pursued a Bachelor's of Art degree in Spanish from New Mexico State University, followed by a Master of Arts degree in Spanish Linguistics. Achievements in graduate school include graduating with honors, at the top of the class. My professional career began in program development projects throughout Mexico as the team directed economically disadvantaged families. My career has been involved in efforts to provide educational support to those that have had fewer opportunities to engage in the higher educational process. Currently I am the Upward Bound Coordinator for Natrona County, and am truly enjoying the opportunity to facilitate the growth of the amazing students I work with.
