BCFS Health and Human Services is a global nonprofit organization offering a range of capabilities. Helping the organization to thrive and support communities requires passionate and dedicated employees like Marilu Reyna.

BCFS Health and Human Services supports the efforts of employees like Reyna, both for their amazing work with the organization, and because of their additional efforts. The organization recently congratulated her on an appointment to the board of trustees for the San Antonio Water System (SAWS). This is a public utility owned by the City of San Antonio that ensures area residents receive fresh and clean drinking water.
Reyna’s appointment complements her current role as a board member at Port San Antonio. She joins SAWS after the city council approved filled the vacant seat, and she was voted to the seat that represents the southeast segment that’s under SAWS. Her appointment earned a note from the mayor Ron Nirenberg who said, “You’re going to be a tremendous fit in this era of SAWS,” and noted Reyna’s strong communications work with BCFS Health and Human Services.
Reyna earned her undergraduate and graduate degrees from St. Mary’s University and attended San Antonio ISD schools as a child. Her board appointment comes with support from Phyllis Viagran, District 3 Councilwoman, and Manny Pelaez, District 8 Councilman.
