Mike Hernandez III has strong ties to the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley and, through his family foundation, established the $1,070,000 funded Brownsville Scholars Program.
Micheal Albert Hernandez III also guides the political action committee OP10.33, which aims to assist Brownsville and the Gulf Coast region residents in achieving economic and social gains over the next two decades. In September 2016, the Cameron County Education Initiative announced that it had teamed up with OP10.33 to acquire a learning facility on Ruben M. Torres Boulevard that spans 12,000 square feet.
The facility was initially put into use through the launch of no-cost adult literacy programs available to residents of Cameron County. It is currently being utilized in launching initiatives spanning information technology, allied health, and industrial trade. The organization’s vice president of community relations described the workforce and educational training programs as providing a significant asset, with no costs associated, to local residents preparing for productive careers.
