Marilu Reyna, Executive Vice President of Public Affairs and Communications at BCFS Health and Human Services, recently was appointed to the board of trustees for the San Antonio Water System (SAWS). Reyna is the Executive Vice President of Public Affairs and Communications for BCFS Health and Human Services and will serve on the SAWS board until her term ends on May 31, 2022.
SAWS was created after the consolidation of three other agencies and is a public utility organization owned by the City of San Antonio. Reyna joins the board of trustees to fill a vacant seat that was approved by the city council. Her seat represents the southeastern portion of the SAWS service area. After her appointment, Ron Nirenberg, the Mayor of San Antonio said Reyna’s work with BCFS Health and Human Services would serve her well in the board member role, saying “You’re going to be a tremendous fit in this era of SAWS.”
A graduate of San Antonio ISD schools, Reyna also earned her graduate and undergraduate degrees from St. Mary’s University. Her vote to the SAWS board came from strong support by Phyllis Viagran, District 3 Councilwoman, and Manny Pelaez, District 8 Councilman. They said Reyna understood business concerns and her challenging job at BCFS Health and Human Services meant she was up to the task of the board’s needs. Viagran noted Reyna will collaborate and work together to solve problems, and she applauded her support of education and social service efforts in the community.
