As the new school year begins, it brings many exciting changes for our students at all level of education. Secondary school students and college level students will be adjusting to the coming changes and anything that affects our future workforce is of importance to all of us.
We are fortunate to have one of our own members and immediate past vice chair of the DRHCC Ms. Dora Alcala, speak to us about the new Texas Higher Education Strategic Plan and its goals to reach by 2030. Ms. Alcala has served as a member of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, an agency of the the State of Texas that oversees all public post-secondary education. The board consists of seven members appointed to six year terms by the Governor of Texas. Additionally, Ms. Alcala has served as the first woman Mayor of Del Rio, retired from a long and successful civil service career and continues her service to our community through her active participation in various service organizations.
Assisting Ms. Alcala in the presentation will be Dr. Maria Ramirez who, before her retirement in 2013, served the SFDRCISD for 35 years in various administrative positions from Speech Therapist to Director of Special Education to Director of Federal Programs.
Please mark your calendars for the September 11, 2016 Del Rio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Membership meeting. See you there.
