Edinburg Schools held a special tribute for 1976 to 1979 School Board members on March 9. The group was ECISD’s first all Hispanic Board, which lead the way for a more equal opportunity for education, employment and growth in the District. Former Boardmembers include Romeo Villarreal, Dr. Ben Garza, Dario V. Guerra Jr., Richard Cantu, Dr. Lucas Hinojosa, Andres Zamora, and Elias Longoria Sr., who has since passed but was represented by his son Elias Longoria Jr.
