Armando Padilla

By Michael A. Garza
Pulse Staff Editor

The March 2017 issue of The Pulse is the seventy-fifth issue published since the Fall of 1998. We asked former reporters and editors to let us know where they are now, their favorite Palo Alto memories, and what advice they would give to current students.

Vietnam veteran, airplane mechanic, former railroad employee, Texas rancher and freelance photographer, Armando Padilla continues to achieve his goals. After his days at Palo Alto College as a Pulse reporter and editor, Padilla went on to graduate from Texas A&M University at San Antonio with his bachelor’s degree in 2016. He will soon begin his graduate degree.

“Accomplishing my associate’s degree at PAC has allowed me to continue in developing my media skills, which have lead to meeting and working with very fine and dedicated students in this career field.  I’m deeply impressed by the knowledge they have brought to PAC and the knowledge mastered at PAC,” Padilla wrote.

Stay onboard with computers and website development. Keep developing all your media skills. You will never know when your 15 minutes are up. Go out and inform the masses.
