While a student in the Big Spring ISD school system, Irene Galan Rodriguez loved school and always strived for excellence as a student. When she became a mother, she was determined to be involved with her three children’s educations so they, too, could take advantage of all the opportunities available.
“As a single mom raising kids, I wanted them to get on the right path and to do that I wanted them to stay busy and so I had to be busy with them,” Rodriguez said.
That passion led her to take a leadership role in public school education for more than 20 years first in the Big Spring Independent School District and now on the state level.
