Juan “Trey” Mendez, III was born and raised in Brownsville, Texas. Growing up in a South Texas border town taught him the value of hard work and perseverance. From an early age, his parents stressed the importance of setting a goal and striving to achieve it. A product of the public school system in Brownsville, he graduated in 1997 from Gladys Porter High School and went on to receive a Bachelor’s Degree in Government from the University of Texas at Brownsville in 2002. Three years later, he graduated from the University of Texas School of Law and moved back to Brownsville with a goal of making a difference in the lives of the people in his community.
Trey believes that being a productive citizen involves giving back and investing in your own community. In 2010, he was elected to a 6 year term as Trustee of the Texas Southmost College District. His passion for Brownsville’s rich history resulted in his appointment as Chairman of the Brownsville Heritage Council. He also recently co-founded the Brownsville Preservation Society, a non profit organization with the mission of restoring and preserving historical homes as a means of bringing awareness and civic pride to the second most historic city in Texas.
