Lecture: The Escontrias Family Legacy: A Very Personal Journey

Irma Escontrias Sanchez is the granddaughter of Silverio and Pilar Escontrias who once owned a working ranch in what is now Hueco Tanks State Park as well as a family farm in Socorro that was later donated for the first school in Socorro, Texas. Irma Escontrias Sanchez will share her family’s history and their rich legacy. Irma hopes her book, "The Escontrias Family Legacy: A Very Personal Journey," will inspire everyone to write the story of their own family and their own life story.
