DENTON — Recent Texas Woman’s University graduate Stephanie Ozuna has been selected for the Moreno/Rangel Legislative Leadership Program and will serve as an intern for a state representative during the 2007 Texas Legislative Session starting in January.

She is one of only 12 in Texas chosen for the program, which is sponsored by the Mexican American Legislative Foundation.

Ms. Ozuna of Edinburg received her bachelor’s degree in business management from TWU on Dec. 16. She was the founder and immediate past president of the TWU G-Force student organization. G-Force is a peer mentorship program that encourages greater participation in higher education by potential first generation college students.

Ms. Ozuna also was named the “2005-2006 TWU Outstanding Campus Leader of the Year” and received the “2006 Emerging Community Leader of the Year” from the university. She also has been recognized by the Phi Kappa Phi fraternity for her high scholastic achievement.

The Moreno/Rangel Legislative Leadership Program is named after the longest serving Hispanic member of the Texas House of Representatives, Paul C. Moreno (El Paso), and the late Irma Rangel (Kingsville), the first Mexican American woman to serve in the Texas Legislature. The program places students with members of the Texas House of Representatives. Students serve as full-time policy interns and work alongside experienced legislative staff. They participate in weekly seminars with the opportunity to interact with other interns, elected officials, community and policy leaders, and state agency representatives.

The Mexican American Legislative Foundation is a non-profit, non-partisan corporation committed to fostering the development of leadership skills among the Latino youth of Texas.
