Dr. Catalina Garcia

In a runoff to represent District 1 on the Dallas College board, Preston Hollow neighbor Dr. Catalina Garcia defeated Lynn Davenport 64% to 36%. Garcia succeeds Gretchen Minyard Williams, who finished the term of her late husband, Sonny Williams.

“First, I’m grateful to the voters for the confidence that they’ve placed in me to fill this term,” Garcia said last night from her victory celebration. “We have so much to do for our Dallas County students. Education has been the cornerstone of my life. It has blessed me with a life that I have enjoyed. I am excited to get to work to give Dallas County students the education and possibilities to grow that they deserve. I will work with each and every person to make that vision a reality.”
