At a special meeting held on April 23, 2024, the Alamo Colleges District Board of Trustees selected Palo Alto College (PAC) student Logan Martinez as the new student trustee. 

Martinez will serve a one-year term from May 1, 2024, to April 30, 2025. In 2014, the Alamo Colleges District was the first community college system in Texas to appoint a student trustee. 

“We extend our gratitude to Brandon Aviado, our outgoing student trustee, and outgoing student trustee alternate, Arali Garcia, for their exceptional service in representing the Alamo Colleges at the state and national level,” said Dr. Mike Flores, Alamo Colleges District Chancellor. “We look forward to seeing the valuable contributions that our new student representatives will make to our board.”

Martinez is studying Political Science at PAC and has a 4.0 GPA. He plans to transfer to Texas A&M University-San Antonio to obtain a bachelor's degree. His future educational goals include obtaining a juris doctorate in constitutional or international law from St. Mary’s University. 

He currently serves in leadership roles at Palo Alto College. He is the Student Body President, President of Catch the Next-PAC chapter, PAC Presidential Ambassador, Vice President for PACMen, and Vice President of Leadership for Phi Theta Kappa. He is a work-study in PAC’s student life department. 

Before enrolling in the Alamo Colleges, Martinez worked as a field organizer for the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations. He has since worked on multiple political campaigns for candidates running for city council and the legislature. 

When he is not involved in school-related activities, Martinez enjoys spending time with friends and family, including his two nieces, and studying philosophy, history and geopolitics. 

Martinez’s vision for his role as student trustee for the Alamo Colleges is to bridge collaborations between clubs and organizations across colleges and to continue to foster the professional development of student leaders.

St. Philip’s College student Eliron Rosin was named as the alternate student trustee. He will attend board meetings if Martinez is unable to do so.
