Remembering Emmy Saenz

#EmmyStrong

VICTORIA, Texas- Newscenter 25 is saddened to announce that Emmy Saenz passed away Thursday afternoon on her 21st birthday. She was surrounded by family. 

Newscenter 25s Bria woods and Carolina Astrain introduced us to Emmy earlier this year in a series sharing how Saenz was learning to live her new life as a quadriplegic following a horrible car accident last October. 

Rosemary Bazan, Emmy’s mom, shared with Newscenter 25 that the family plans to establish an Emmy Saenz scholarship for future Austwell-Tivoli graduates. 

The community will remember her tenacity and fierce determination she displayed beating the odds every day. We send our condolences to her family. She will be greatly missed.

Special thanks to Emmy Saenz and her family for the contributed photos.
