Brooke Garcia is WGTEN’s November Woman Leading By Example!

This month I would like to honor Brooke Garcia with the WGTEN Woman Leading by Example Award.
Brooke is the Executive Director of the Victoria County United Way. Brooke has a career in working with nonprofits and prior executive director roles before coming to Victoria. As part of United Way Contribution and Allocation processes, Brooke leads volunteer committees and through her efforts, is instrumental in touching 16 nonprofits simultaneously which provides monetary assistance to our community .
I want to honor Brooke as, in addition in focusing her community efforts through her role as Executive Director, I have experienced Brooke’s passion for all nonprofits in her willingness to volunteer in speaking engagements, as with WGTEN. I admire Brooke expanding her passion to nonprofits outside her United Way realm and choosing WGTEN to share her gifts and talents. We are honored to have her as a member and I am honored to call her my ABWA sister and name her as our November 2020, Women Leading by Example recipient.
Sandra DeLaGarza
President
