Gonzales rubs elbows with famous actor
March 13, 2021 - SSCN project coordinator Richard Gonzales met up with Hollywood star Pepe Serna in the hallways of Martin Middle School today and presented him a GMF reusable bag and a World Seagrass Day T-shirt.
Gonzales was on campus to leave letters of recommendation for three SSCN students applying to the Moody High School Innovative Academy. Serna, a Hollywood actor who is originally from Corpus Christi and most notably appeared in the movie “Scarface” with Al Pacino, often tours schools while visiting his hometown.
March 2011 - World Seagrass Day on March 4 was established by the GMF’s Science & Spanish Club Network as a way to promote and increase public education and outreach about the importance of seagrasses in ecosystems around the world. Redfish Bay, which connects several communities in the Texas Coastal Bend, is a Texas Parks & Wildlife designated State Scientific Study Area because of vast seagrass meadows that attract thousands of outdoor recreationalists who benefit from seagrass ecosystems. Exhibitors included Port Aransas Girl Scouts, Aransas Pass Boy Scouts, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, Aransas National Wildlife Refuge, Fulton Learning Center, Welder Wildlife Refuge, Texas Master Naturalists, Blaschke-Sheldon Elementary Science & Spanish Club, and the Aransas Pass Moose Family Center Scholarship & Family Fishing Tournament Committees.
