Special presentation honoring and celebrating Mrs. Alex Hernandez, honorary alumna ’22

TMI will honor and celebrate Mrs. Hernandez and her legacy of 41 years of service at TMI during Alumni Day on April 1st.

After 41 years of service to TMI, Mrs. Alex Hernandez will be “graduating” at the end of this school year from her role as a full-time faculty/staff member, but will continue to serve TMI working with alumni and special projects to further advance the future and mission of TMI.

TMI is grateful for the many years of dedication, hard work, and love that Mrs. Hernandez gave to both the school and its community members. The caring impact she had on the lives of our students during her time here–across her many positions–will be felt for years to come.

Mrs. Hernandez began her journey with TMI at “Old Main” in Alamo Heights, TMI’s second campus. She has seen TMI transition to the current campus and helped it grow into the thriving community it is today. Over the past four decades she has served in almost every department at TMI, but her favorite position is working with alumni.

Last July, she returned to the the Advancement Office, serving in her current role as the Associate Director of Alumni Engagement, leading initiatives in Advancement that foster a more vibrant and connected alumni community at TMI. She is a valued member of the TMI community and her vast amount of knowledge and experience enriches the TMI community each day.
