HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia is a trailblazer and a visionary and credits the Houston Independent School District for instilling in him values that have helped him to become one of the most prominent figures in law enforcement.

Sheriff Garcia who is the first Hispanic Harris County sheriff, praises HISD’s teachers, parents and school district officials for helping him to reach his fullest potential: “They taught me how to dream,” Sheriff Adrian Garcia states in a new video that is part of a series on leaders who were educated within the Houston Independent School District.

According to information released from the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, Sheriff Garcia’s “…parents and siblings were born in Mexico and, under a legal immigration program, moved to Houston, where he was born and raised. The video by HISD, whose student population is majority Hispanic, mentions that Sheriff Garcia is the first Harris County sheriff of Hispanic descent. The sheriff’s office is the largest in Texas and third largest in the nation.”

Sheriff Garcia who won reelection in 2012, thanked HISD and attributes his success to a solid foundation at HISD. ” I would say to every kid that every bit of instruction you receive within an HISD school is valuable”, added Sheriff Garcia. [The instruction one receives at HISD] is preparing you for success; it is preparing you for the future.”
