Mr. Rene Gonzalez supported me through every step of the waythrough my high school years from freshman to my senior year. He not only helped me, but he alsoassisted my two older sisters that attended Milby and went through the CIS program. My family is forevergrateful for all that he has done for us, and for supporting us through thick and thin. He listens toeveryone’s problems, and somehow he does his best to help all of us find solutions. This summer, I hopeto get a job through the CIS Summer Employment Program and start getting real life job experience.After the summer, I will be going to University of Houston Downtown to do basic studies and raisemy GPA for two semesters. Then I plan to transfer to University of Houston Main Campus and studyIndustrial Design. I couldn’t have done this without CIS and Mr. Rene Gonzalez. He has become suchan important figure in my life, and he still pushes me to do my very best no matter what.” – Moysinael, Class of 20154
