This week, the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) elected Armando Rodriguez to a second, three-year term on its Board of Directors to conclude in June 2023.
Rodriguez was unanimously elected to serve an initial three-year term on the NALEO Board in 2017.
NALEO Educational Fund is a leading non-profit, non-partisan organization that facilitates full Latino participation in the American political process, from citizenship to public service.
“To be effective advocates for our community, the leadership of this organization continues to empower the Latino community and create opportunities for kids,” Rodriguez said. “We address the complex issues facing our community and influence legislation that affects student outcomes.”
A graduate of Canutillo High School and the University of Texas at El Paso, Rodriguez is a native of the Border and a leader in his community. His work on behalf of students extends beyond El Paso.
Earlier this month, Rodriguez was nominated to serve as Secretary/Treasurer of the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB), a nonprofit association that serves local public school boards to become the first trustee from Region 19 to serve as an officer on the TASB Board of Directors since 1998.
In addition to his recent TASB officer nomination, he currently serves as the Region 19 Representative on the TASB Board of Directors. He also serves on the Board of Directors of the National School Board Association (NSBA) and was selected by his peers to serve as treasurer of the organization’s National School Boards Action Center.
At NSBA, he also serves as chair of the National Hispanic Council. Other leadership positions for Rodriguez include being a member of the Board of Directors for the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials.
Previously, Rodriguez has served as president of the Mexican American School Board Association and the Far West Texas School Board Association.
