Joseph Gallegos, Humble High School alumnus and club president, is spending his summer months organizing the Lone Star College-Kingwood’s Ecology Club’s Food Drive to benefit Humble Area Assistance Ministries.
“The purpose of the food drive is to help people that are in need [of food] in this economic crisis,” Gallegos said. “We believe that just ecology is not all the club is about. The club is also about helping the community.”
Gallegos’ high-school mentor and Spanish Club sponsor Yallian Spears says, “Joseph is a young leader, a caring young man whose ultimate goal is to help others.” Spears goes on to say “the quality I like the most about him is that he always involves others to reach that goal. He’s very organized, focused and decisive, and for those reasons he will change the world little by little, one step a time. At Humble High School, we’re so proud of alumni like him.”
