CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas– Mr. John Fortiscue, retention specialist for the Center for Academic Student Achievement (CASA) at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, has been elected as Treasurer for the Texas College Reading and Learning Association.

Fortiscue was nominated by Dr. Gerardo Moreno, and was elected to a 2 year term that will start in October of this year.

"I will be with educators who communicate and utilize best practices in learning assistance, developmental education, and tutorial services" said Fortiscue. "To learn what they know and share with my colleagues ideas and practices that are working with students."

Fortiscue is currently working as a retention specialist, at CASA, for at risk students. In April, Fortiscue and colleague Colin Bohne accepted an award for CASA's AIM Program after having met the training requirements for International Mentor Training Program Certification.
