It was with great pride that Lizzy de la Garza Putegnat announced to the RGV LEAD Board that Dr. Gonzalo Salazar, Los Fresnos CISD Superintendent, and RGV LEAD board member, was recently selected by the Texas Association of School Administrators to serve in a leadership role in the statewide organization. “Salazar, who has been the Los Fresnos superintendent since 2006, has been an active member of the association for 15 years. He has represented Region One on the TASA Executive Commit-tee for the past 12 years and has served on the TASA Legislative Committee for the past 10 years. Salazar was a member of the inaugural Future Ready Leaders Institute and is currently the co-chair of TASA’s Race, Equity, and Diversity Committee.
“I am humbled by the opportunity to serve in this role,” Salazar said. “The professional learning sessions available through this first-class organization and the relationships forged with the incredible leaders of public school systems throughout this great state have helped me grow professionally. I look forward to continuing to work alongside the members of this organization, representing Los Fresnos, and Region One as we help shape public education in Texas.” (Excerpt from MyRGV)
