Recruiters Drive to Success.jpg

Tracy AveryI'm Tracy Avery, Director of Recruitment at Odessa College.  Born and raised in Austin, I graduated from Del Valle High School and went on to attend Concordia University at Austin for my Bachelors and recently completed my Masters at Angelo State University.  As a first generation college graduate, I understand how stressful the college admissions process can be, and the adjustment to college life-changing and challenging. Since 2006 I have had the pleasure of serving in higher education, in admissions and recruitment for both public and private institutions. I have served the Odessa and West Texas communities since 2012 for OC.

We know you have a choice when it comes to your higher education and I'm excited that you’re interested in OC! Please feel free to contact me should you need any assistance - I'll be happy to help.

Go Wranglers!

Myriam Martinez

My name is Myriam Martinez, and I am an Outreach Specialist for Odessa College. I was raised and attended school in Mexico for many years before moving to Texas. After graduating from high school in El Paso, I continued my studies at El Paso Community College. I eventually transferred and received my Bachelor's Degree from The University of Texas at El Paso. I then went on and received my Masters Degree from the University Of North Texas in Denton. Being the first in my family to study in the United States, I faced challenges including adapting to the English language, a new culture, and a new educational system without much guidance from those around me. 

It is now my goal to help others navigate what sometimes may seem like the impossible dream of obtaining a college degree. I hope you consider Odessa College, as it is a great institution that can help you reach that goal. Please contact me if I can be of any assistance to you!

High Schools I serve: Andrews High School, Crane High School, Grandfalls/Royalty High School, Kermit High School, McCamey High School, Monahans High School, ECISD Alternative Education Center, Odessa High School, Sherwood Academy, Rankin High School, Seminole High School, Wink High School.
