ALAMO - Dozens of people gathered for a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday for the opening of the Marcia R. Garza elementary school.
The school has been dedicated in honor of Marcia Garza and it is the newest elementary school for the PSJA school district. The school is named after Garza, who served as a teacher, counselor and principal in the PSJA school district for more than thirty years. The elementary opened it's doors in August for about six hundred students. Mrs. Garza passed away four years ago from cancer and leaders say she left a huge imprint in the community. Elementary Principal Claudia Gonzalez said, "Marcia Garza was a very positive individual, very strong person. She was a leader in this community, not only in her school at Garza Pena elementary, where she was a principal, but also in the community itself in Alamo."
