  • USACE Galveston District spotlight on Paulino Hernandez Sandoval

    GALVESTON, Texas (Jan. 6, 2016) – Growing up in Mexico, Paulino Hernandez Sandoval spent his days working in the vineyards to pay for night school. While picking grapes and thinking about what he planned to do with his future, he often paused to notice the busy engineers working on a nearby dam construction project. Interested in what they were doing, he would devote his breaks to talking with the engineers and learning about the field. By the end of the summer he surmised that if they could do it, so could he and thus began his journey to becoming an engineer for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Galveston District.
