Mariah Fusco ’19, is flying on the fast track to success.

Currently a sophomore at McMurry University, majoring in Christian Ministry and minoring in Sociology, Mariah is soaring ahead of her peers as she plans to graduate a year early in 2019. With dreams of heading to the U.S. Air Force, she’s grasping all she can from the University while she’s there.

“McMurry teaches their students about faith, community, confidence and leadership and it’s with those four skills, that outside of your everyday courses, you learn how to be the best you that you can be,” said Mariah.

Following her early graduation, Mariah plans to go to seminary school, continue her ministry work, and eventually head to officer school for the U.S. Air Force to serve in airfare chaplaincy.

From Boyd, Texas, Mariah fell in love with McMurry when she toured the University with a friend who was a current student. She instantly fell in love with campus and the students and faculty she met while visiting. Mariah says that she knew right then that McMurry was the only choice for her, and without seeing any other schools, she chose to be a War Hawk.

Mariah is active in campus ministry, Theta Chi Lambda, the Alpha Kappa religion honors society, the beanie bag project, and more. She thoroughly enjoys her Christian ministry and sociology courses, and says her favorite professor is Dr. Robert Wallace.

“At McMurry, you’re not just a student, you’re a part of a family. There is a sense of community within the students and the faculty, and McMurry gives their students so many opportunities to be involved in service that your experience here makes you a part of that community.”

“McMurry teaches you to be the best you can be in your professional life, in your relationships, and in your faith.”

It’s with the support of her fellow classmates, professors and community within the University, that Mariah is confident she’ll enter the next chapter of her journey soaring to new heights, and proud to be a McMurry War Hawk.
