South Texas Ideas Festival (STXi)

2016 Bezos Scholar Michael Mireles and educator Marcos Silva created a student-led event that serves as a platform for local community leaders to connect with young adults. 

STXi raised awareness about the increasingly critical role that the youth play in the Rio Grande Valley region of Texas. Now more than ever, it is the responsibility of students to take the lead in their communities and act to ensure a prosperous future for themselves and their peers.
