The Spirit of HBU Dinner was hosted during HBU’s Family Weekend. The family of Alejandro and Olga Solorio was awarded HBU’s Family of the Year. The Solorios have a daughter and two sons, Alex and Eric, who are both part of the HBU family. Alex is an alumnus of HBU who graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Christianity in 2013 and his Master of Arts in Theological Studies in 2015. Alex was a member of the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity, the chaplain of the football team, Homecoming king, and resident’s director during his time at HBU. Alex is currently a College and Young Adult Associate Minister at First Presbyterian Church in San Antonio, Texas. Eric is a junior in the Honors College, a Dean’s list student double majoring in Christianity and Classics, a youth leader of the teens ministry at the Solorio’s church, and a member of the praise team Refuge on campus. Mr. and Mrs. Solorio have been married 29 years. They both accepted Christ as their Savior in 1996 and were baptized in 1997. Their daughter is expecting her first child, their first grandchild, in January. Their daughter and son-in-law are full-time missionaries in Thailand with Living Word International Ministry. The Solorios are from Houston and were very honored by the award. Mrs. Solorio said in response to being chosen: “It is humbling. We are very simple people who live to the serve the Lord.”
