Buckner President and CEO Albert Reyes was featured in the San Angelo Standard-Times yesterday in an article that shares the path that took him from an undergraduate student at Angelo State University to his present role leading an international Christian nonprofit.
He has enjoyed heading to places like Bangladesh, India, Egypt, Palestine, Guatemala, Dominican Republic, Peru, Honduras, Mexico, Ethiopia, Kenya and Russia, as well as San Angelo and other cities across Texas. But, mostly, he loves his job because he truly feels he is doing God’s work.
“Blending my diverse experience and background together to lead this organization to serve vulnerable children, orphans and families is one of the most exciting things that I do,” Reyes said. “It’s the kind of thing that Jesus was really focused on, caring for children and families. So every time I get the chance to make a difference in the life of a child or a family, it is the best thing that I can imagine spending my life doing.”
He recently returned to his alma mater to speak at their commencement ceremony this past December.
