Featured Staff: Lisa Aguilar, HSD Region 8 Title I-C Advocate of the Year

The Oregon State Title I-C Advocate of the Year is Lisa Aguilar, principal of WL Henry Elementary.  She received her award on Friday, November 2, 2018, accompanied by family members.

Lisa Aguilar has been in the field of bilingual education for over 20 years, and has always been a strong advocate for EL and Migrant students and families.  This is a life mission very close to her heart.  She works closely with both PAC and PTO parent leaders, and holds monthly “coffee with the principal” meetings to gather feedback from families and to build relationships.  She is a trust-builder who fosters open dialog and meaningful conversations. Principal Aguilar guides Henry to be a welcoming, safe space where students are respectful, thoughtful, honorable, and kind. 

Hillsboro School District extends celebratory congratulations to Principal Aguilar, and is proud to have such an exemplary educator at the helm of WL Henry.
