On March 24, 2018 Del Rio held the 6th annual 2018 Southwest Texas Women’s Seminar at the Civic Center. The two keynote speakers were Tinesha Cherry, an assistant director of trade operations for U.S. Customs and Border Protection at the Detroit Field Office, and local cancer survivor advocate Mary Pierce. They were inspiring all women about overcoming obstacles whether it was cancer or a hard childhood. There were many local businesses with booths there to show their support. Representing the Del Rio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce were director of women issues Xochitl Arteaga and administrative assistant Beatriz Villarreal. We look forward to what next year’s Women’s seminar brings.
