Crystal City school superintendent Alberto Gonzales said, "President Romo, today you make history as the first university president to ever visit Crystal City."
"We were excited to visit with the officials in the Middle Rio Grande area," said Romo. "I hope to see many of their students furthering their education at UTSA because we know they can bring a lot to the university, and we have a lot to offer them in return."
