Last week Texas A & M San Antonio president, Dr. Cynthia Teniente-Matson sat down with District 3 Councilwoman, Rebecca J. Viagran, District 2 Councilwoman, Jada Andrews-Sullivan, and District 4 Councilwoman, Dr. Adriana Rocha Garcia to discuss education, female leadership and future planning for the South side. 

The panel discussed a holistic approach to “blending districts” and connecting the city through strengthening education and communication within and for neighborhoods. The discussion was very agreeable and affirming as the panel recounted their journeys to pursue leadership roles and the obstacles they experienced. Spirituality and family were recurring themes. 

Students and community members asked questions at the end and engaged in conversations about resources and access to mentorship in order to support each other.
