The road map was super interesting and a very unique idea. I liked all the visuals at every turn. I also liked how the information was short and to the point. You picked all the important points and that’s all the reader needed to know. It was a very interesting and original infographic. I can tell you spent a lot of time on it, great job!
Hello, Andrew! The first thing that caught my eye about your infographic was the road that seems to have acted as a timeline throughout your infographic. I especially enjoyed how it ties in with the “path to Washington” notion that’s mentioned in the title of the infographic. I very much enjoyed learning that a St. Mary’s University alum was elected to serve in the US House of Representatives and was also a major player in civil right activism. I personally find his story to be incredibly inspirational as I too hope to attend St. Mary’s Law School in the coming years. It has also been a dream of mine to be a congresswoman, so knowing that someone that came from the same roots that I came from is especially motivating. Thank you so much for teaching myself and others about such an influential San Antonio native. Good job!
Love the visuals for the infographic! Learning more about local civically engaged leaders is such an important task an a student. His record for filibustering against segregation is impressive and surely makes St. Mary’s proud seeing as he is an alumni. This infographic was also easy to follow allowing the reader to really retain the information on Congressman Henry Gonzalez.
I love the infographic title Mr. Henry B. Gonzales StMU Alum goes to Washington. Excellent job choosing the blue and gold school colors scheme. I did not know he was a graduate of Alamo Community College, UT, and St. Mary’s University. The infographic was visually pleasing and informative. Good job illustrating Congressman Gonzales’ career was a life of service to other people. Awesome job Andrew.
I am in shock your infographic is so creative and I am in love with the idea behind it. Connecting your infographic to the roots of St. Mary’s is genius. It’s an amazing idea for students to learn more about the history of their school and the success of the people that once attended their school. Henry Gonzalez will be remembered for greatness.
Woah! The road was a super creative way to tell Henry B Gonzalez’s story, it was easy to understand and told us his story in a simple manner but also a creative one. I didn’t know that he went to St. Mary’s law school, and I also thought how crazy was it that he was re-elected 17 times. Overall, awesome job!
As someone who was born and raised in San Antonio, I have only heard about Henry b Gonzalez by the convention center located downtown. It is nice to put a face to that name. Love how the title mention “goes to Washington” and the infographic is made like a timeline and a road. Do not know if it was intentional but I thought it was genius.
Great to learn about a STMU alumni who went on to do great things in the House of Representatives after receiving a education in Texas and St. Mary’s. Impressive that he filibustered against segregation for 36 hours in a row as well as serving for a very long time in the House. He was also a veteran and born from immigrant parents Im sure he made his family proud nice to know the background behind his name now when I see it on campus.
The visuals were very well done and pleasing to look at. I enjoyed all of the information provided. I believe the pictures were very helpful and fit in perfectly with the theme. Awesome job Andrew!

I only recently learned about the HemisFair mainly after searching on Google about the Tower of the Americas. Never did I read more into the event itself to find out that a StMU alumni was the person who pushed for such a event to happen not only here in San Antonio but also in Texas in general. I always wondered who he was because of the Convention Center but after seeing this infographic in more detail, I realized not only did he serve us back then, but he was one of the first Mexican-American senators in the US government as well. The information here was really interesting to learn about regarding someone who had a impact in our community overall.
