Retired Dallas Anchor Gets School Named After Her

By Kevin Eck 

Retired WFAA anchor Gloria Campos is getting a school named after her.

Texas Can Academies announced it will name its new early childhood development center in honor of Campos.

Campos retired from the Dallas-Fort Worth ABC affiliate in March after nearly 30 years at the station.

“This honor is especially meaningful to me as I feel like I have dedicated most of my adult life advocating, encouraging and raising money so that others can realize their goals and dreams,” Campos told Media Moves. “With education anything is possible. It’s the great equalizer and the key out of poverty. I am humbled, honored and still in shock that in September there will be a Gloria Campos Wee Can Academy!”

The ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony for the Gloria Campos Wee Can Academy is set for September 15, 2015.

“When I look back at my career, I can’t believe it all happened to me. My high profile career gave me an opportunity to advocate for causes that are important to me. Education has always been number one to me. I certainly could not have enjoyed a successful career without it and I want all children to have that opportunity, especially Latinos.”
