An alumna and a faculty member put Brookhaven College in the news in May, but in very different ways. Veronica Rodriguez, a former student, was featured in the Arlington Citizen-Journal on May 23rd. Rodriguez was awarded a scholarship from the Rotary Club of Arlington that has supported her with tuition and book funds as she earned first her associate degree from the college, then a bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas at Dallas. Marla Ziegler, fine art professor, was featured in the Dallas Morning News (DMN) on May 20th in the “Lifestyles” section for her largest piece of art – her home. The article discusses Ziegler’s dedication to designing her home as a way to showcase her art collection, which features numerous Texas artists along with her own works.
