Adjunct Professor Desiree Romo is joining the Modesto City School board of trustee after unanimous approval by the board.

According to a report in the Modesto Bee, Romo said she was excited to serve and grateful for the opportunity.

Romo holds a master’s degree in public administration. Besides her work at Brandman’s Modesto campus, she is a career services adviser and business program director at Heald College. She serves on the board of directors of the Stanislaus County Latino Chamber of Commerce.

“My passion is with the English learners, the low-income students and foster youth,” said Romo, who worked for Modesto City Schools for nine years, including as the Hanshaw Middle School principal’s secretary. Her husband works at Downey High as a campus supervisor. Her son is a junior in the Health Careers Academy at Davis High and her daughter is a 2010 Downey graduate.

Romo will fill the seat vacated by Rubén Villalobos, last elected to the board in 2013. He resigned, effective Jan. 4, to become a Stanislaus Superior Court judge. November’s election will fill the two years remaining on that term.
