We Want to Tell Your Family’s Story

Left: Humberto Gonzalez was in the first cohort of graduates in 1927. Right: Last April, his great-granddaughter, Angelica Alvarez ’24, received her Javelina Ring. Pictured, from left, with Texas A&M-Kingsville President Robert Vela ’94, ’98, ’03; Jaime A. Gonzalez ’58, ’64; and Annabel Alvarez ’85, ’91.

In anticipation of celebrating our Centennial—100 years since the founding of our university—we are seeking Javelina family connections that span generations.

For example, Humberto Gonzalez was a member of our very first graduating class.

Upon graduation from South Texas State Teachers School, he moved to Zapata and changed the educational future for the city and its citizens. Zapata citizens affectionately called him “El Professor”.

Two of his sons, Humberto Jr. and Jaime, attended Texas College of Arts & Industries. From there, other descendants became proud Javelinas.

Most recently, two of Humberto’s great-grandchildren; Jacob Gonzalez graduated last summer and Angelica Alvarez will graduate in May.

Tell us your Javelina Family Legacy by tapping the button below and sharing all your connections—by birth or marriage—to other Javelinas.
