"Its motivating to be part of The Southwest Education Foundation because I have been a life-long member of the Southwest district and I have had many family members that have and continue to attend SWISD. Which includes the first valedictorian, cousins, an uncle, siblings and my two children. In addition, my experiences as a university student, and my career in business showed me how important a good education is to being a well-rounded individual, one that will be better able to live and work in a diverse world. A good education helps our students build the confidence to make their place in the world."
