TTUHSC El Paso Staff, Faculty Complete Leadership Texas Program

This month, Leadership Women Texas graduated its latest class of women leaders from across the state. The year-long fellowship provides educational and professional development opportunities for Texas women seeking to advance their leadership skills.

While the women in the program benefit from a statewide support network of other women in leadership positions, the institutions they represent also have a chance to showcase and recognize the talented women leaders in their organizations.

Among this year’s graduates were Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso staff members Vanessa Solis-Cortez, assistant to the president and Brianna Huffman, associate director of special events; and Cheyenne Rincones, M.S.N., B.S.N., R.N., faculty associate and clinic director in the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine.

“I was honored to represent TTUHSC El Paso and the greater El Paso community in the Leadership Women fellowship,” said Rincones. “There is no better motivation than gathering successful women leaders in their areas of expertise in policy, education, business, engineering or health sciences — and becoming influenced by their innovative approaches to leadership that have made an impact. The year came to an end, but the networking and bonds formed will last much longer.”
