Newly appointed South Texas College Board of Trustee for District 3 Paul R. Rodriguez was sworn-in on Aug. 29 during an Oath of Office Ceremony held at the college’s Pecan Campus Library Rainbow Room in McAllen.
Rodriguez was sworn-in by U.S. District Judge Ricardo Hinojosa for the Southern District of Texas.
“I fully understand that there are expectations and standards that I’m expected to fulfill and I have no intention of disappointing the board,” said Rodriguez after taking the Oath of Office. “While my overriding responsibility is to South Texas College as a whole, I fully understand the duty I have in representing Southeast Mission, Sharyland, Granjeno, Hidalgo, South McAllen, and Southwest Pharr. I’ve spent the past 30 years working and or living within this district, and I look forward to promoting the needs and interests of this diverse district.”
