“Portraits of Alumni Achievement”

Christine “Tina” Treviño ‘80

“An education gives you independence, power and a strong
knowledge that can help guide you.”

Christine Trevino

Christine “Tina” Treviño ‘80, BSEED
Founding Board Member/President
Communities in Schools Laredo

Growing up in Galveston in the 1950’s was a difficult time. Discrimination against Latinos was common. After completing high school, Treviño was advised by her guidance counselor that she should become a beautician. She had other aspirations – she wanted to be a teacher. She fulfilled her dream by completing her degree long after she finished high school, married,
and had three children. Her role model had been her mother who had gone through a similar process in acquiring her education.

Today she champions the rights of all children to receive quality education and have decisions made that are in their best interest.

She credits her family’s tenacity, perseverance, strong work ethic, honesty and pride for shaping who she is today.
