Hector Guzman

SMU alumni leave their mark on society in myriad ways, from the arts to education to public service. Some leave footprints around the world through the paths they choose to follow.


Jane Albritton

For Hector Guzman (’83), a native of Mexico, music is the universal language he uses to connect with audiences as he leads and conducts symphonies in Texas and worldwide. For Jane Albritton (’67, ’71), the Peace Corps gave her an outlet to experience the then-exotic nation of India, creating memories to share in the celebration of the organization’s upcoming 50th anniversary.


Heather DeShon

And geophysicist Heather DeShon (’99) never stopped her intellectual pursuits after graduating from SMU. The assistant research professor has traveled far and wide to study Earth’s movements and potential hot spots for earthquakes. She’s featured in the Ones To Watch profile.
