Morgan LaMantia is a South Texas businesswoman. A Valley native, she is part of the next generation of leadership in the family business that supports over 1,200 jobs across Texas and beyond. Morgan heads up data analytics and serves as In-House Counsel, carrying on the legacy of her grandfather, Joe LaMantia, of building opportunities through hard work and giving back to the community. Beyond that, Morgan walks the walk as an active community volunteer, from supporting the STARS scholarship programs where 100% of the funds go to local students to serving on the Board of Directors of nonprofits, including the Gladys Porter Zoo. Growing up in South Texas, she knows how important it is for border families to have access to an advocacy organization to help guide them along the process. She wants to be an advocate for these families, so that they know they have a voice representing them, not only in South Texas, but in Austin as well.
