Candidates for CHCI-AA Dallas Chapter Board
Click to review the Regional Chapter Officer Position Descriptions.
I was born and raised in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico and immigrated to the United States at the age of 7. I attended the University of Detroit-Mercy and graduated with a B.S. in Business Management in 2014 and an M.B.A in 2016. Upon graduation, I accepted a position with a multinational automotive corporation in Dallas. Since arriving in Dallas, I have worked to put down roots and have been involved with various Latino mentor and professional organizations. I am passionate about the opportunities that higher education can bring, serving my community, and playing soccer.
My why: Over the last two years, I have had the privilege to serve as Programs Coordinator for the CHCI Alumni Dallas Chapter. During this time, we hosted various alumni events to increase participation with our alumni through professional development, philanthropy, and civic engagement opportunities. As President, I plan to increase alumni participation through professional development, volunteering, and mentoring opportunities.
Fall 2015 Congressional Intern
Ramon Hernandez is currently a third-year student at SMU’s Dedman School of Law in Dallas, TX. He hopes to graduate in May 2021 and consequently pursue a career in civil litigation in Dallas. Originally from Chihuahua, Mexico, Ramon moved to Arlington, TX in 2008. For his undergraduate studies he attended the University of Texas at Arlington, where he graduated with a double bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Criminal Justice, cum laude. He participated in the Congressional Internship Program in the Fall of 2015, where he interned for the office of Congressman Marc Veasey, TX-33. Ramon hopes to continue expanding the CHCI network in the DFW area by encouraging young students to participate in the different CHCI programs and by coordinating events to keep the alumni connected after their return.
I would like to remain involved in the organization. I currently serve as the Programs Coordinator, and have close ties to the past board members here in Dallas. I would like to continue growing alumni engagement in this area.
