Longtime educator Margot Cisneros Torres was named a congressional record award recipient. The San Benito Chamber of Commerce, where she serves on the board of directors, recently held a ceremony honoring the achievement.

U. S. Rep. Filemon Vela, D-Brownsville, read the congressional record, which also is being presented to the Speaker of the House and members of Congress. The distinction will also be registered in the Library of Congress.

Torres, the San Benito Consolidated Independent School District’s executive director of human resources, is retiring after 31 years as an educator. At San Benito CISD for the past two years, she has been responsible for overseeing human resources, risk-management, health services and parental engagement.

She previously worked for the Brownsville Independent School District for 26 years, serving as a principal, assistant principal, human resources specialist and as an English teacher. She also worked as a principal in Point Isabel Independent School District for three years.

“I believe that all students can and will learn if they are given ample opportunities,” Torres said. “Student learning and promoting education have always been my passion. I will never forget a child’s face light up when they truly understand a concept for the first time. This is one of my fondest memories.”

Torres was born in Brownsville and is the youngest of five siblings. She is married to Clemente Torres and has three children: Tom, Jacqueline, and Esai, and four grandchildren: Nicholas, Merida, Luna, and Zachary.

Torres attended Brownsville public schools. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Pan American University and a master’s in educational administration from the University of Texas at Brownsville.
