Ms. Sharyll Teneyuca is a graduate of Rice University and New York University School of Law. She was voted Outstanding Young Lawyer by the San Antonio Young Lawyers Assocation in 1985 for her work as the founder and director of the Pro Bono Law Project, the first volunteer attorney assistance project for the representation of indigents in civil matters in Bexar County. As a Municipal Court Judge, she created the Community Service Program, providing an alternative to incarceration for citizens unable to pay city fines. Both programs have become an integral part of the San Antonio community. She has endeavored to carry on her Aunt Emma's legacy of compassion for human beings and dedication to justice. A former Legal Aid staff attorney, she practices law (and makes wonderful pecan pralines) in San Antonio, where she lives with her husband and three sons. She is currently at work with co-author Carmen Tafolla on the full biography of Ms. Emma Tenayuca.
