At BCFS Health and Human Services, we applaud the accomplishments of our staff members both on and off the job. In that light, we congratulate Marilu Reyna, Executive Vice President of Public Affairs and Communications, for her appointment to the San Antonio Water System board of trustees. SAWS is a public utility organization owned by the City of San Antonio, formed in 1992 after the consolidation of three other agencies.
Reyna is also a board member at Port San Antonio. She joins the San Antonio Water System’s board after approval by the city council to fill a vacant seat. After the vote, Reyna occupies the board seat that represents the southeast section of the SAWS service area.
The Mayor of San Antonio, Ron Nirenberg, noted Reyna’s work in communication with BCFS Health and Human Services as an asset, saying, “You’re going to be a tremendous fit in this era of SAWS.” Her term will end on May 31, 2022.
Reyna attended San Antonio ISD schools and earned her graduate and undergraduate degrees from St. Mary’s University. For her appointment to the SAWS board, she received strong support from Phyllis Viagran, District 3 Councilwoman, and Manny Pelaez, District 8 Councilman. They noted her understanding of business concerns and her exemplary work managing a challenging position within her organization. Viagran said Reyna is for collaboration and will listen to solve common problems. Reyna champions education and social service initiatives. Viagran said what Reyna brings to the board is what SAWS needs to take it to the next level.
