Suarez noted that, as a representative of our area, he would focus on the positive aspects of life that he has seen here.

“There is no better place to live than east Texas,” he said.  “The people, the atmosphere and the cooperation are unbeatable.”

TVEC Public Relations Manager Bobbi Byford, who will act as a chaperone for the trip, noted that the winners’ futures may be shaped by the experience.

“As in the past, we have two great young people to go on this trip,” Byford said. “The enthusiasm and excitement from these two young men tells me they will gain a lot from the hands-on learning and opportunities, and bring a lot of that back as they become leaders in their schools and communities.”
