Dr. Ruben Gallegos, the 2008 UTB-TSC Distinguished Alumnus, will speak to the graduates.

Born into a large family in El Calavoz, Gallegos began his college education at Texas Southmost College and earned an Associate in Arts degree in 1957. He went on to receive a master’s degree and education doctorate from East Texas State University.

Gallegos helped lead school districts in Brownsville, Dallas and Edinburg before his retirement in 1993. He also heads an international education agency that works with undocumented children who are apprehended by immigration officials
