Meet Faces of Parkland

Alexandra Gonzalez

Alexandra Gonzalez
Hometown: Onarga
Major: Nursing
Interests: Club Latino

Alexandra, an Iroquois West High School graduate from Onarga, has set her sights on obtaining a PhD in nursing anesthesia. She has been earning scholarships along the way to her goal, including a Board of Trustees Scholarship from Parkland College, given to students in the top 10 percent of their high school graduating class. But it’s not just the money she appreciates.


“I don’t think people understand the amount of support, both financial and educational, that Parkland has to offer,” Alexandra says. “I have yet to have a teacher who wasn’t passionate about what they are teaching; it makes for a great learning environment.”


Alexandra’s education journey includes working hard (she’s on the dean’s list) and engaging in campus activities with Club Latino. It’s no surprise that she encourages new students to “get involved; make friends with classmates and those in fellow organizations.”
