Today, Rubi and Efrain exemplify generosity for their sons, Mateo and Tomas, by planning gifts from their life insurance policies. Rubi’s gift will provide a scholarship to South Texas students in the Department of Recreation, Parks and Tourism Sciences, where she hopes future Aggies will experience the same impact the curriculum had on her. Efrain’s scholarship for Company G-1 cadets from Laredo will allow others like him to enjoy the camaraderie he appreciated during his time in Aggieland.
“I’ve always tried to lead by example,” Rubi shared. “It stems from my grandmother, who instilled in us the importance of giving back to our communities.” While Emilia planted the first seed of generosity years ago, Berta, Eddie, Becky, Rosella, Rubi and Efrain have ensured that the Garcia family legacy flourishes today.
“My parents generously gifted prepaid life insurance policies to our boys to help them fund their own college educations—hopefully at Texas A&M,” Rubi smiled. “We hope our sons will learn from our generosity and use these assets to also pay it forward to other Aggies, continuing our family legacy.”
