Life is a test. Each day we are faced with decisions to make that can have lasting effects on our future. It can be daunting enough for one to decide on what they want to achieve in their lifetime. The youth of today are truly at the mercy of a challenging job market. Guidance can be of the utmost importance. With over 43 years experience in the public/higher education system, Dr. Judith Loredo has dedicated her life to the enhancement of each and every student she meets.

“No matter what your challenges or obstacles are, they can be overcome. You can achieve all of your dreams in whatever they may be,” exclaims Loredo. “For my own experience, I faced a variety of difficulties in a sheltered education until my college years."

Born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, Dr. Loredo overcame a number of educational hurdles including reading comprehension, which went unnoticed until her parents were determined and successful in teaching her how to read. Dr. Loredo went on to rise above the challenges she faced and built an extensive educational and professional background.

Currently, Dr. Loredo is the Assistant Commissioner of the Division of P-16 Initiatives with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.  “I oversee the division that is responsible for bridging the gap between public education K-12 Grade and higher education. In today’s world, it’s imperative for kids to compute beyond high school.”

“I didn’t come from a golden spoon. I’m not embarrassed by limitations. I’ve worked since I was 15 years old. I never gave up and I was fortunate that there were people that believed in me. I faced many closed doors but found another way to open them. Kids need to find that capacity and that’s what I share with them.”
