My daughters and grandchildren know about Mr. Richard Garza because I told them the story. The story about a man who came into our city when so many young Chicanos/Hispanic men, including myself, were lost, running the streets and being pushed into manual labor trades in school.

He provided us the example of an educated, well polished, Spanish-speaking gentleman who then gave us the ganas to do something for ourselves, for our families, for our city.
