Mike Hernandez III Named Brownsville Avenger's Person of the Year
The chief executive officer of D&M Leasing, an auto leasing company in Dallas, Micheal “Mike” Albert Hernandez III is a native of Brownsville, Texas. In an effort to drive prosperity in his hometown, Mike Hernandez III supports OP10.33, through which he encourages positive change in Brownsville and the wider Cameron County area.
In 2016, The Brownsville Avenger named Mr. Hernandez its “Person of the Year.” Noting the difficulty in fostering change in an area that traditionally has been unwelcoming to outside influences, The Avenger noted that Mr. Hernandez is perhaps the most active philanthropist in the region and commended him for not only talking about the changes he wishes to make in terms of local politics, education, and economy but also providing the capital to support his ideas.
The Brownsville Avenger, a news blog based in the city of Brownsville, Texas, stated its belief that OP10.33 would experience a bigger and better 2017 under the guidance of Mike Hernandez III.
