2007 Smithsonian Traveling Exhibit:
“Portraits of Alumni Achievement”
Jorge F. Gonzalez ‘87
“Life is funny; there is no set of instructions to follow.”
Jorge González ‘87, BBA
Executive Vice President
Falcon International Bank
Although his parents did not have a formal education and both worked full-time, they were the best thing that happened to González. They taught him and his siblings to be honest and hardworking. Learning at a young age to treat others with respect influenced their decision to attend college and enter professions of service.
He also credits his preparation for life to his athletic experiences where he learned that hard work and diligence pay off. His basketball coach was instrumental in reinforcing the values learned at home. Today, González serves as a role model to his children and others. He has been blessed with the ability to help others because of his community involvement. Serving on the boards of different civic organizations has given him the opportunity to network with other influential members of the community and together have been able to make a difference in Laredo.
