Christina Torres Garcia and her husband, Martin Meraz-Garcia, are Eastern Washington University professors and the first in their families to earn post-graduate degrees. Both have Ph.Ds from Washington State University. They tell first-generation college students who come to them for advice that “there’s no way you can go wrong with more education.” They pose for a photo on the EWU Cheney campus earlier this month.
