Phiota becomes youngest LULAC state director

Arkadelphia, Arkansas - September, 2009

Alejandro Aviles became the youngest state director in the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) on Saturday when he was tapped for the position by the group's Arkansas chapter. Aviles, 27, is a founding member of Phi Iota Alpha at the University of Arkansas and a current student at the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service.

In his position, Aviles will direct the efforts of Arkansas's seven LULAC councils across the state that advocate for civil rights and the advancement of opportunities for the more than 150,000 Latinos in Arkansas. He will also represent the state on LULAC's nation board.

"I look forward to securing key partnerships with organizations, state agencies and public officials essential to advancing our mission and whose charge for serving the public can be enhanced by our membership's input and dedicated service," Aviles said.

Aviles, who is in his third semester at the Clinton School, recently returned from his International Public Service Project in Chetumal, Mexico, where he worked with the Mexican Commission for Refugee Aid.

A native of Fayetteville, Arkansas, he also serves on the board of the Arkansas Public Policy Panel and the University of Arkansas Chancellor's Council of Diversity.

He is also founding member of Phi Iota Alpha at the University of Arkansas and has done extensive volunteer work as a steering committee member for the Arkansas Citizens First Congress and as a member of the Arkansas Task Force on Latino & Hispanic Affairs, appointed by then Governor Mike Huckabee.

"The Hispanic community is not immune to our nation's struggles in the economic crisis and employment woes," Aviles said. "LULAC recognizes special disadvantages faced by them in educational attainment and immigration reforms. We hope to continue our work in Arkansas to decrease these gaps."
