LSS Mentors


Rebekah Hickson

Tiffany's Office Hours: TBA

My name is Rebekah Hickson and I am currently a sophomore here at Sam Houston State University. I am majoring in Criminal Justice with a minor in psychology in hopes of becoming a correctional counselor upon graduation. As a LSS mentor for ProjectConnect, I love helping out students to the best of my ability as well as guiding them in hopes that they may reach both their educational and life goals. On a side note, some of my hobbies include working out, reading, listening to music, playing videogames, and watching movies religiously. I am a very understanding and caring individual so I will always be here to lend you an ear if needed and help in any way I can. My hope as a mentor is that I can help the students reach their full potential as well as helping them to realize that you can have a wonderful college experience while also maintaining exceptional grades. Overall, I feel like working with you all will be beneficial to both you and I and I am greatly looking forward to it!


Tiffany Reyes

Tiffany's Office Hours: TBA

My major is Victim Studies with a minor in Psychology. I want to help people of all ages who have been abused in some way. I would like to work for CPS or become an advocate and become a Foster Mom. Mainly, I want to make a difference in someone’s life. I love working with people and will help someone when I can do so. I love to cook and bake, but mostly I love seeing people eat my food. My strengths involve including people, having connections with others (relate to), and to bring laughter in some way shape or form.


Derrick Tate

Derrick's Office Hours: TBA

Hello my name is Derrick Tate and I am a junior here at Sam Houston State University. I’m studying for a B.S. in Kinesiology with a minor in Secondary Education. I am a student but I am also a LSS mentor/student assistant for Project CONNECT. With my degree I want to become a teacher for high school and a football coach and ultimately move up the ranks to college or pro coaching. I love sports being from Houston I go for all of the Houston sports teams: Texans, Rockets, Astros, etc. I really like helping others which is why I enjoy my job when it comes to mentoring people who just need that extra push from somebody who knows what they are going thru far as trying to succeed in college. My ultimate goal is to drive students who may not have any support from nobody and to encourage them to keep on going. Do not give up on your goal to graduate from college, because if you could get accepted to college you surely can graduate.
