RGV LEAD Represented at Horizons 2022 National Convention in New Orleans
Luis Rodriguez, RGV LEAD Executive Director, and Dr. Norma Salaiz, RGV LEAD contractor for Texas Regional Pathways Network intermediary team, attended the Jobs for the Future (JFF) Horizons 2022 Conference in New Orleans as part of their work with RGV LEAD’s Pathway to Prosperity programs. Rodriguez stated, “Stakeholders from the nation gathered to share emerging trends and issues impacting students’ successful transition to postsecondary and the workplace. The sessions were informative and had plenty of networking opportunities.”
I’m blessed to be still working with RGV LEAD on the TEA/JFF Pathways to Prosperity initiative serving 12 RGV districts. I’ve spent the last few days attending their Jobs for the Future – Horizons 2022 Conference in New Orleans. Stakeholders from across the nation gathered to share emerging trends and issues impacting students’ successful transition to postsecondary and the workplace. Always excited to collaborate with other leaders attempting to make a positive difference.
The duo and the rest of the TRPN intermediary team of Eliza Groff and Janie Johnston Lopez look forward to sharing new ideas and best practices with TRPN and RGV LEAD partners.
RGV LEAD meets with Dr. Derek Niño, Jobs for the Future, about
