Students, alumni, and distinguished guests gathered together at Henry B. Gonzalez Elementary School on Thursday, November 14th to celebrate the campus' milestone. Former State Representative Charlie Gonzalez, Henry B. Gonzalez's son, and his family were in attendance at the event. He spoke of his father's love of learning and the impact teachers had in his life, "One of my father's proudest achievements was having this campus named after him."
