Trinidad Garza High School Receives Act Award April 14, 2016
Marc Veasey, D-TX
"Since 2013, the annual ACT College and Career Readiness Campaign has recognized participating high schools and community colleges for their outstanding efforts in education. The prestigious award is presented to only one school per State that demonstrates exceptional efforts in preparing students for college and career readiness. Given Trinidad Garza’s commitment to preparing students for success in higher education and the workforce, this accolade is well-deserved. The award also celebrates individual students within participating schools for their outstanding progress on their ACT scores, such as Trinidad Garza seniors Paola Soto, Ivan Gonzales, Barry Levine, and Lizbeth Garcia."

Women’S Rights Are Human Rights February 25, 2016
Mike Quigley, D-IL
"Statistics show women’s economic output is dramatically impacted for the better when they determine the timing and spacing of their pregnancies. When she is able to plan pregnancy, a woman is more likely to advance in education and the workforce. Conversely, unplanned pregnancies too often force women to leave school and to delay or abandon career ambitions outright in order to care for children before they are ready and with limited support and resources."
