Yvette Lara, Corpus Christi native, wife (Randy), mother (Lauren & Austin), and graduate of Incarnate Word Academy High School and St. Mary's University-San Antonio, recently joined the staff of the United Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce as the United Chamber Foundation's new Executive Director. In her role, Yvette is tasked not only with overseeing and implementing the Foundation's programs (such as Leadership Corpus Christi, Lemonade Day, and Mano A Mano) but also with a supportive role for the Alumni Association through an agreement with the United Chamber.
Over the last few months, Yvette has already begun to expand upon the ever growing and evolving relationship between the Foundation, LCC Program, and our Association. As the conduit to our lines of communication (and who better to aid 1200+ LCC graduates cooperate than a woman fluent in FOUR LANGUAGES: Spanish, French, Japanese, and English!), she is helping decipher and translate the needs of both organizations to help us work towards an even stronger collaboration. Yvette says thus far in her new role, "I have enjoyed meeting leaders who are very passionate about our community and are willing to dedicate their time to help shape future leaders." She is looking forward to "continuing to grow our programs and provide more opportunities for our youth and businesses."
Welcome to the world of LCC/LCCA, Yvette! We look forward to your bright future with the Chamber Foundation and LCCA.
