At the Hart Global Leaders Forum 2014 Colin Powell (retired U.S. Army four star general) spoke with Garza ECHS students about developing themselves into the best that they can be through commitment to excellence and education. Mr. Powell has held positions as Commander of the U.S. Army Forces Command, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, National Security Advisor, and U.S. Secretary of State. Monique Flores had the opportunity to pose a question to General Powell as seen in the video. Our group took a group picture during the break for lunch: Mr. Kuykendall Enrique Granados, Monique Flores, and Leah Rodriguez.
Garza ECHS joined our legacy namesake, Trini Garza, in celebrating the success of Garza ECHS in the past and unveiling the brand new logo for our future. Mountain View College, our higher-education college partner, was instrumental in this project. Their collaboration and community partnership are a major contributor to our school's success!
