RGV LEAD was honored to have participated in the remarkable 2023 RGV Economic Summit, brought to life by the Rio Grande Valley Partnership and the City of Edinburg- Government. Guest speakers delivered inspiring, exceptional speeches about the Valley’s economic growth.
The event’s highlight was witnessing the Office of Governor Greg Abbott’s signing of the Rio Grande Valley Alliance Compact alongside 21 regional mayors and three county judges. This historic moment solidified RGV LEAD’s collective dedication to investing in the region’s burgeoning economy and exceptional workforce, which ensures a radiant future for South Texas.
RGV LEAD would like to recognize the RGV LEAD board members who were in attendance: Board President Maricela “Mari” De León; Esmeralda Adame, Vice President, Ysmael Fonseca, 476th Judicial District Court in Hidalgo County; Viviana Espinosa, Director at Texas State Technical College; Francisco Almaraz, Deputy Director at Workforce Solutions; and Ruben Quintero, VP- Commercial Loan Officer at Rio Bank.
