The National Hispanic Council of School Board Members convened its Annual Nominating Committee via conference call on Thursday, March 17, 2016. The Committee consisted of myself and two representatives from NHC Membership, Mr. Ruben Campos (IL) and Mr. Sylvester Vasquez (TX), both members of the Council.
Charged under the NHC Constitution and Bylaws the Committee affirmed unanimously that it would endorse only those candidates who were judged to be the most outstanding leaders to represent public education and the interest of Hispanic Students.
The following slate of candidates represents those persons whom the Committee believes has the potential to do a truly outstanding job on behalf of public education, and would serve as excellent representatives of the National Hispanic Council:
- Chair-Elect Steve Corona (IN)
- Vice-Chair Lydia Hernandez (AZ)
- Secretary Jesus Rubalcava (AZ)
- Director, Southern Region Gloria Casas (TX)
The Hispanic Council Nominating Committee carefully examined the qualifications of each applicant for consideration as members of the NHC Board of Directors. The Committee believes these candidates can provide capable leadership to NHC, and recommends them for election as NHC Officers and Regional Director.
The Hispanic Council Elections will be held on Saturday, April 9, 2016 from 10:30 am – 11:45 am, at the Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel, Grand Ballroom E, in Boston, MA.
