There was a special ceremony this morning to honor a retiring principal at Incarnate Word Academy.

For 18 years, Adolfo Garza served as leader of the Middle Level at IWA.

A flagpole dedication was held to celebrate the long-serving educator.

Garza will be retiring at the end of this school year.

“It means a lot,” Garza said. “My mother has a school named in her honor. It’s a junior high.

“I never thought I’d get anything named in my honor, maybe a closet. But here we are, a flagpole will be here for quite a while, So, it’s quite an honor. I’m very grateful, very grateful for that.”

Garza says he hopes the students will always be good ladies and gentlemen and always do their best.

And we wish him the best in his retirement.
