Michael Albert Hernandez III serves as the chief executive officer of D&M Leasing in Dallas. Outside of work, Mike Hernandez III remains actively involved with the community where he grew up in Brownsville, Texas, by supporting a number of initiatives, including the eponymous Hernandez Foundation. Recently, he donated $250,000 to the Endowment Fund of Guadalupe Regional Middle School through the foundation.
The school has a proven track record of success helping students succeed academically while receiving the social support they need to continue performing at their peak. In addition, Guadalupe Regional continues to provide services to students through college to encourage success. However, because the school operates without tuition from students, its financial solvency is in question each year. This gift will allow the school’s endowment to grow and provide protection for its programs in times of economic difficulty.
Additionally, the Hernandez Foundation has promised a matching grant for the 2017-2018 academic school year. Individuals who would like to help the institution reach the matching gift goal can make contributions online at GuadalupePrep.org.
