Kenesha Starling
UHCL alumna first African-American to lead South Texas Law Review
When University of Houston-Clear Lake alumna Kenesha Starling finishes summer school in a few weeks, she will start her third year at South Texas College of Law Houston, where she was recently named editor-in-chief of the prestigious South Texas Law Review — the first African-American in the college’s 96-year history to be appointed to the post. Starling has a bachelor’s degree in general business from Texas Southern University, and an MBA from UH-Clear Lake in 2005. “I’m living the dream,” she said. 
Maria Laws
Alumni credits family support, profs with college success 
Maria Laws’s family didn’t cross the stage with her when she received her Bachelor of Science in psychology from University of Houston-Clear Lake in May, but she said she couldn’t have done it without them. “Getting my degree was definitely a family effort,” she said. Over 12 years ago, Laws said she decided to go back to school and get her college degree. “I was raised in an environment where college was not really encouraged,” she said. “I was an accounting associate for a long time and I was passed over for promotions a lot because I didn’t have a college degree. I made the decision to get it when my older daughter was 7 months old.”
