Board of Trustees

The Guadalupe Center is fortunate to have an extremely active and engaged Board of Trustees and Advisory Board that serve as advocates and ambassadors for the children and community we serve. The Boards and various committees have regular meetings and are also integral to the Guadalupe Center's events each year. The Board of Trustees and Advisory Board members are an incredible asset to the Guadalupe Center in the mission to break the cycle of poverty through education. In the words of former Board Chair Don Popejoy, "One person can make a difference, but a whole lot of one persons working together can make a huge difference."
