Juan Reyna, a first-generation graduate, was born in Brownsville, Texas. He earned a Business Management Degree and began his career as an investigator and legal caseworker at Child Protective Services. Working with Child Protective Services in Corpus Christi and San Antonio made him an advocate to make a difference in the foster care system.
