Evelyn Garcia Morales
Evelyn has dedicated her career to creating and leading educational opportunities for diverse communities. She’s running to represent District C on the Clark County School Board of Trustees, a community with a population of 60% Latino and 20% Black students. Evelyn is a first-generation American who earned a high school diploma, college, and graduate degree thanks to her parent’s tremendous sacrifices and commitment to education. Her parents knew that an advanced education was a way out of poverty. Like her own parents, parents in District C have educational dreams for their own students too.
Early in her career at the YMCA of Southern Nevada, she led outreach programs that provided after school tutoring and drug prevention classes, and managed the Family Resource Center based in District C. Additionally, she spent 11 years managing award-winning national leadership programs for Latino students across the country. Today she serves as the Executive Director of the Fulfillment Fund Las Vegas, a nonprofit organization that proves over 400 scholarships to students who are first in their family to go-to-college and come from low-income households.
Evelyn lives in Las Vegas, NV with her husband and son.
