StMU Research Scholars

Maria de Socorro Gonzalez “Choco” Meza


This is a new genre that some of the students in PO 2302 Civic Engagement & Social Action decided to attempt above and beyond their actual assignment to help our class design ways to disseminate their research and presentations beyond our small group. To qualify to publish, students had to further edit their work and make the presentation more engaging by following a story arc and by removing most text and adding transition and morphing effects wherever possible. I am grateful to my entire class this Fall 2022 for taking on this challenge and for working  above and beyond their course requirements to help us experiment with a new format for publishing on the StMU Research Scholars website Project coordinated by Dr Brad Whitener.

  1. Choco Meza was truly a pioneer, advocate, made her mark in history and left a legacy. Congrats on your nomination. Your presentation was thoughtful, articulate and the presentation was informative and engaging. I enjoyed how you concluded with simple steps on how to get involved and make our own imprint on our communities. Kudos.

  2. Congratulations on your nomination! I really enjoyed learning about Choco Meza’s story and her activism. This presentation format was also really fascinating– I loved seeing the photos alongside the explanations. It’s incredible to think about all that she did for our local community. I attended the Choco Meza event hosted by St. Mary’s a while back and it’s inspiring to see how her legacy continues! Thanks so much for sharing.

  3. Awesome job! I loved how you told her story and how much representation she gave many Latinas. I actually had no idea who she was until now and how much she did for many Latinas in Bexar County. I also enjoyed at the end when you talked about the ways Latinas can continue her ideas by voting and having a voice in your community. Overall, great job! and congratulations on your nomination!

  4. I really enjoyed this video! Very informative! What is very interesting is that she had transformed the city of San Antonio. It is so amazing that someone made a difference in our own city and even went to St. Marys! Wow amazing video! I like how her mission was to make sure the Mexican race was treated equal.
