The search is over! TAME is thrilled to welcome a new Executive Director, Andrea Herrera Moreno, who brings an exciting combination of youth development, STEM education, and non-profit leadership to the team. Below is Ms. Herrera Moreno’s letter to the TAME family, introducing herself and her vision for the next chapter in TAME’s future.
Saludos TAME Family,
I am excited to join this marvelous network of creators and leaders. Whether you are a current club member, a club sponsor, a chapter leader, a dedicated staff member, an alum, a board member, or a devout champion of our work, one thing is evident. You are committed to making the Texas STEM community more diverse for all our well-being.
It’s the passion and energy in this network that drew me to TAME, and that energizes me to continue the legacy paved by many since 1976. These uncertain times have brought into more focus the need to ensure all members in our Texas community are connected, supported, and encouraged to reach their goals. Simultaneously, STEM professionals are crucial to making our world more accessible and equitable. We will continue to leverage our strategic advantage, our TAME family ecosystem, to continue to inspire and engage the future STEM professionals of Texas, especially those students still discovering their potential.
I have dedicated my career to growing informal educational spaces that partner up with their members and support them on their journeys. I’m eager to learn from you and to set in motion the strategy for our next chapter.
Please reach out to me with your ideas and questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Andrea Herrera Moreno
