Sergio Cavazos, Coming to An Election Near You

Sergio Cavazos
Sergio Cavazos messaged us recently about his desire to return to Brownsville once he completes his undergraduate studies at the University of Texas.  After stating that he wants to "get involved in Brownsville, he added:  "Over the past couple of years, I've noticed a lot of the key issues associated with the governmental/educational priorities of our community and how they have long-term development implications on the growth of our citizens as they attempt to branch out into their professional careers."

Cavazos reminds us of the words spoken by legendary UT football coach, Darrell Royal, at the time of signing Tyler, TX high schooler Earl Campbell to play football for Texas.  Royal stated that Earl would be his starting fullback the following year, despite being a freshman and, in spite of UT having an All-American already at that position.  Royal explained:  "If a dog's gonna bite, he'll bite as a pup."

Sergio at 16, After Speech to BISD Board
Five years ago, when Sergio was a mere pup of 16, many of us were smitten with his poised, well-articulated presentation before the BISD Board of Trustees, as he addressed transition issues facing Veterans Memorial High School.

Here is the link to Cavazos' presentation before the school board in 2011:

Later, during a presentation by BISD administrators about molding Veterans into a STEM school, Cavazos questioned if administration had a transportation plan in place and funding to transport students from all over Brownsville to Veterans.  They did not.

Since that time, Cavazos has been active in UT student government, currently serving as President of the UT Senate of College Councils.

Cavazos claims that, despite the recent emphasis on dual enrollment, many of his Brownsville peers were not ready for UT.  In his own case, he found that students from other areas of Texas were well ahead of him in credit hours at enrollment.

The young man is mulling over his options, but is currently inclined to run for some local office in upcoming elections.

  4. 99.9% of our high school grads can't handle a tier 1 university.

    99.9% of our UTB/TSC grads are not prepared after college.

  5. Stay away from OP1033. Stay far away from anything that has the stink of Carlos Marin. Stay.away from all City Commissioners. Stay away from Sylvia's Army. Read the blogs, not The Herald. Ignore interview requests from Duardo. Remember that no good has ever come from speakimg with Bobby Wightman. Do these things and you might stay clean.

  6. To attain a college education and then spend one's professional life in pursuit of government office is to waste said college education, as well as said life

    1. More like he is doing Trump no good. Alex actually makes Trump look less polarizing.

    2. It would be good if Sergio earned his keep by actively participating in some of the citie's non profits before jumping into politics. There are lots that can be accomplished as a working volunteer for the betterment of our city. Too many of our current elected officials have never been involved in the community before running for office and you can see what that gets us.Dumb Decisions.

  12. I disagree that 99.9% of our BISD kids cannot compete at UT or any other Tier-1 school. I am the proud parent of a 2016 UT graduate who graduated in 3 years from UT with a honors. My kid is a Hanna HS (2013) graduate.
    I believe this young man (Sergio Cavazos) is an example of our kids doing great - as is my kid and others who are at UT and other schools. Support our district rather than always criticize it.
