Houston trial attorney Benny Agosto Jr.’s recent gift to establish a diversity center at his alma mater, South Texas College of Law Houston, combined two of his life passions: giving back to the community and encouraging more diversity in the legal field.

In grateful recognition of the $3 million gift from Nikki and Benny Agosto Jr.—one of the largest single gifts to any law school for this purpose—the new center will be named The Benny Agosto Jr. Diversity Center at South Texas College of Law Houston.
