When they graduated from La Joya High School in May, Jesus was honored as valedictorian while Julian took the title of salutatorian. High honors for brothers who grew up in a primarily Spanish-speaking household. Now the two will share another recognition as they have been named Exemplary Migrant Students through the Texas Migrant Interstate Program.
The brothers will receive their award on Nov. 22.
The brothers are proud to call La Joya their hometown. Both brothers remember always having family close by and leaning on each other when troubles arose.
