San Antonio, Texas, Saturday, August 18, 2012 – Judge Antonia Arteaga and her daughter rolled up their shirt sleeves today to assist Senator Uresti in his big back-to-school event at Palo Alto College. The Senator and his staff expected up to 4,000 parents and children at the event which provided food, information booths on community resources and programs, entertainment, a backpack giveaway and other special treats for the students and their families.
This Back-to-School event and its smaller counterparts throughout the community are designed to give working families important information regarding local community services as well as get kids excited about the new school year.
“Thanks to Senator Uresti, his amazing staff and all other community leaders who came out to this HUGE back-to-school event,” said Judge Arteaga. “Most importantly, a special thanks to all the incredibly hard-working volunteers, especially from Bank of America, AND the incredibly patient families who participated. It’s going to be a great year for education!”
