Rolando Alvarez will fill the Barrow County Board of Education’s vacant seat. The BOE made a unanimous blind vote for Alvarez at an Oct. 21 called meeting.
Alvarez, a resident of Winder, said he has three children in the school system and has “always been passionate about politics and had a desire to become a public servant.”
Alvarez graduated from Gainesville State College in 2002, studying industrial engineering, and attended the University of Phoenix, pursuing a bachelor of science degree in business and project management.
Alvarez has been the vice president and banking center desktop application manager for Bank of America since 2010. He has worked for the company since 2005.
He serves as a mentor in the Barrow County School System, has coached soccer and baseball in the community since 1998, and is bilingual.
