- Major at OCC: Engineering Science
- High School: Jersey Village in Houston, class of 1998
Dr. Deirdre Hunter fell in love with science and engineering as a young woman while working on cars with her father in his auto repair business. She earned degrees from OCC, Syracuse University and Virginia Tech. Today she is a Lecturer of Engineering Design at Rice University in Houston. “If I would have attended a four-year university right out of high school I do not think I would have excelled academically to the extent that I have. For me OCC was not an only choice, it was my choice.”
