By Sheri Tydings

Rob Vandeman, chair of the Highland View Academy (HVA) Board, recently announced that Deborah Pacheco Trevino accepted an invitation to serve as the school’s principal. “Deborah brings a host of skills with her, including expertise in strategic planning, development of community partnerships and team-building strategies,” says Vandeman. “We feel very fortunate to have her at HVA.”

Trevino’s professional experience includes administrative positions at two colleges in Texas: Northwest Vista College and Our Lady of the Lake University. She also held positions as a political appointee in the Office of the Mayor in Reading, Pa., and the Office of the Governor for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. She is currently completing a doctoral program in Leadership Studies at Our Lady of the Lake University.

“It has been nothing short of astonishing to look back on the way that God has orchestrated events that eventually led to the acceptance of this new challenge,” Trevino shared. “I am very excited about this opportunity and look forward to getting to know our constituents.”

Trevino comes to HVA with her husband, Mario, and her son, Stephen, who will be a senior at HVA. She is also an alumna of HVA, having graduated with the Class of 1988.
