La Feria, Texas — The Texas Workforce Commission recognized Noble Texas Builders for their achievement of reaching over 10% with a “We Hire Vets” decal along with a certificate of recognition.

The ceremony itself was hosted at Noble’s main office right here in La Feria. Local attendees included: the Mayor, City Manager, and Fire Chief along with others who attended the ceremony. 5×5 brewing out of Mission also intended to be receiving this award, though due to last-minute changes, they were unable to make it to the event.

“We’re here to recognize Noble Texas Builders and 5×5 Brewery for getting the goal of at least 10% of the workforce comprised of veterans”

Vela late gives a speech with a warm welcoming to Noble’s CEO Rene Capistran, describing him as a leader who both leads with “head and heart”.

Talking with Mr. Capistran he mentions that he too wore the uniform, and says “I think we have a moral responsibility, to do our part…”

Though they have over 10% veterans, Capistran says “We won’t be happy until we’re over 20%, but you know what, it’s a great start.”
