Interests In addition to my wife, children, and grandchildren, I currently am most involved in Dropout Prevention & Student Motivation. I also am honored to have supported the efforts to honor Cesar Chavez by renaming a major downtown Dallas street, Central Expressway from Pacific to Grand Avenue, in his honor. See www.MexicanDallas.org.
