2016 HIS Officer Swearing In Ceremony

Justice Eva Guzman of the Texas Supreme Court graciously swore in the 2016-2017 officers of the Hispanic Issues Section at a ceremony at the Texas Supreme Court on October 3, 2016:

  • Arturo Aviles, Chair
  • Betty Balli Torres, Chair-Elect
  • Justice Gina Benavides, Vice Chair
  • Larry Banda, Secretary
  • Valerie Carillo,Treasurer
  • Manuel Escobar, Immediate Past Chair

Chief Justice Nathan Hecht also visited with us, and his presence and support always is appreciated.  You may remember that Justice Hecht supported the effort to address the unaccompanied minor crisis (in which HIS also took a prominent role) by encouraging attorneys to volunteer.

Some pictures from the swearing in ceremony are below.  Thank you to Justice Guzman and her staff, Chief Justice Hecht, and the entire Texas Supreme Court!
