A native of Dallas and a graduate of Texas A&M University, Pedro Aguirre is considered a city leader for Dallas. In honor of Aguirre’s accomplishments and in anticipation of his 80th birthday, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins declared that July 27, 2013, is to be “Pedro Aguirre Day.”
In 1960, Aguirre founded the company Aguirre Roden, and it has since been named as one of the top 300 architectural firms worldwide. In addition to being a leader in business, Aguirre has served on the Dallas City Council, Regional Transportation Council, Greater Dallas Chamber of Commerce board, as Chairman of the Mexican American Advisory committee to the Dallas Independent School District and in various other civic positions in the area.
Judge Jenkins acknowledged Aguirre’s numerous achievements and thanked him for his “tireless service and commitment” to bettering the county.
