Devyn Justice grew up in Plano, Texas and graduated from Plano East Senior High in 2015. When Justice came to Texas State University for her undergraduate studies, she discovered her passion for the fields of psychology and education. After she earned her bachelor’s degree, she continued on at Texas State to pursue her specialist degree in School Psychology. When Justice graduates next year, she will work full-time in public schools, conducting assessments for special education eligibility and providing counseling services to children with disabilities.
As a first-generation college student, her education has opened so many doors. Justice is very passionate in her belief that all children deserve access to a high-quality education, and she is honored to work towards making that a reality. She is grateful to have had her mom, fiancé, and the rest of her awesome family to encourage her to pursue her dreams. She hopes to pay their care and encouragement forward to every child she works with.
I feel so honored to have been chosen for this scholarship – I can now look forward to my classes with less stress and more excitement. Thank you so much for this opportunity!
