Does your student's college have an Entrepreneurship program?

Guerrero family at Trinity University

by Manny and Denise Guerrero —

Trinity University has empowered our two son’s with a plethora of tools – academic rigor is among them – to turn them into successful students, individuals, athletes and if the desire is there, also into entrepreneurs and innovators.

Our oldest son Austin Guerrero, is a junior at Trinity and will be in the class of 2018. While looking for colleges online, he stumbled upon the now 25-year holder of the title, from U.S. News & World Reports as “Best in the west school” called Trinity University. We visited Trinity along with others schools and I recall Austin mentioning that there was an entrepreneurship program available for those who were up for the challenge at Trinity. Austin was more than excited because he knows our family is full of “Shark Tank” junkies. I could sense the anticipation and excitement when Austin was accepted to attend Trinity and into the Entrepreneurship program, plus Trinity awarded Austin a scholarship to help with tuition. We had a very grateful and happy young man!

Austin presents his work in Trinity's Entrepreneurship Program

Austin was always a hard working kid who loved to learn, play sports, interact with family, friends, and practically anyone who was willing to listen to him talk. Austin’s strong points are leadership, commitment, and humility. Austin learned music through piano and played chess by competing at state and in national tournaments. He loved to play sports and follow college and professional sports teams of all styles, I thought for sure we had an ESPN commentator amongst us.

Austin is majoring in mathematical finance. He participated in the development and presenting of a phone app along with his partner to local business professionals while in the Entrepreneur program. The knowledge he gained by real world experience is lifelong and my personal thanks and appreciation go to Luis Martinez, director of the Entrepreneur program, who instilled priceless lessons gained from those pitches. Austin is now currently a captain on the track and field team as a javelin thrower, Resident Life mentor for first-year students, vice president of Data Analytics for The Financial Initiative, Trinity Distinguished representative for the Admissions office, and also is a member of Greek Life on campus in the social fraternity, Omega Phi, as well as a business fraternity, Delta Sigma Pi.

Guerrero sons at Trinity University
Trinity University students Brian and Austin Guerrero.
Our youngest son, Brian Guerrero, is a first-year at Trinity University in the class of 2020. He will be an engineering major. Brian did very well in high school, learned music at an early age with piano, played chess, loved club basketball, plays golf, and loves to play court and sand volleyball. Brian also has a great relationship with friends and family and makes conversation with almost anybody. Brian decided quickly that he was going to attend Trinity University after visiting the campus on several occasions. Brian was also awarded a scholarship for academics and a grant for his science and technology major to help with tuition. Brian is in the Innovation and Entrepreneurship program. As parents, we can honestly say that Brian has found his little slice of heaven on earth. Brian has found a groove on campus as well and he has already joined an engineering society. He has only been on campus since August and we know he is still finding other ways to get involved and stay busy. We know he will make an impact on campus much like his brother and oh, and his roommate has already been a hit too!

We are very pleased to be Trinity parents!
