Mr. Flores has taught bankruptcy at the El Paso Community College, and he has also spoken to hundreds of local high school students across the city about money management.
A product of local roots, Mr. Flores is a native El Pasoan, attending Vista Hills Elementary, Desert View Middle, and graduating from J.M. Hanks High School in 1991. In high school, Mr. Flores played varsity football and ran track. He despised neon colors, but admittedly wore the acid washed jeans on a regular basis.
An avid mixed martial arts fan, Mr. Flores practices the sport three to four times in a week. It is not uncommon for him to show up to work with a black eye, a fat lip or a swollen elbow to mention a few. He has gained the respect of his employees and colleagues and has yet to discover the nickname coined for him at the office. Depending on who you ask, he is either "The Mighty Migs" or "Hamburger Face".
Mr. Flores has two children. Nina, age 18, is a freshman attending St. Mary's University. Evan, age 13, is an accomplished saxophonist, golfer, track runner, and gets his good looks from his father.
