“Portraits of Alumni Achievement”

“Haz el bien y no te fijes a quien.”
Gerardo A. Garza ‘97, BA
Commissioner Precinct 3
County of Webb
This “dicho,” engraved in Jerry Garza’s mind by his grandfather, guides his daily life. He finds it more important to cultivate relationships with as many people as he can than to have superficial interactions.
Born in a middle class home to hardworking parents with strong morals, values, and ideals Garza was provided the best lessons in faith, service, and education. Education was always a priority and his parents sacrificed a great deal to ensure he attain it.
He has always been service-minded and first became involved in politics when he served as President of the TAMIU Student Government Association. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Political Science in the hopes of one day holding an elected position in this democratic country.
