2010 Alumni Scholarship – Tessa Brunetti

Tessa Brunetti hopes that attending Arkansas Tech will be the first step toward a rewarding and meaningful career as a pharmacist.

“The well-being of the patient is really the pharmacist’s responsibility,” said Brunetti. “This is so intriguing to me. Researching the newest and latest medications and getting to play a hand in nursing someone back to health is an amazing concept. I want to help.”

Brunetti is a graduate of Russellville High School, where she was president of the Future Business Leaders of America and a member of Student Council, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Family, Career and Community Leaders of America, Young Republicans, National Honor Society and the tennis team.

She was also a representative to Arkansas Girls State and an RHS Ambassador.

Brunetti’s parents are Kathryn and Ricky Brunetti. Kathryn completed her degree from Arkansas Tech in 2006. Ricky graduated from Tech in 1981.
