Krystal Escobar

Krystal Escobar was born and raised in Corpus Christi, TX.  After graduating from Richard King High School in 2002, she attended Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi to begin studying Communication.  In 2007, Krystal graduated from Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi with a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts, with an emphasis in Media Communication.  During her senior year in college, she began an internship at Corpus Christi’s local ABC news affiliate, KIII-TV3, and assisted in producing, writing, and production.  Following graduation from the university, KIII hired her full-time to begin working in production, which she did for two years.  She also worked a short time as an Account Executive at a local radio station, before landing her current position.  Krystal has now returned to Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi to work as a Program Coordinator for the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences.  She currently runs three programs for the department, a Graduate Assistantship program, a scholarship program for incoming freshman going into the Mathematics and Computing Science fields entitled STORM, and an Undergraduate research program called CS/AMP (Computing Sciences and Alliance for Minority Participation).  While working as a Program Coordinator, she has learned the importance of engaging students in Computer Science, especially minorities, and she hopes that her insight and experience will make a difference in the CSCP project.
