Cuero native appointed to national board by Obama

Before Barack Obama left office, he appointed 20 people to the National Museum and Library Services Board. One of those new members is Cuero’s own Sylvia Orozco, the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Mexic-Arte Museum in Austin. She has held this position since 1984. She was sworn in Jan. 17.

The NMLSB serves as an advisory board for the Institute of Museum and Library Services, an institution whose mission it is to inspire libraries and museums to advance innovation, lifelong learning, and cultural and civic engagement by providing primary federal support to 35,000 museums and 123,000 libraries across the nation.

“It is an honor to have been appointed to the Board, and I’m eager to represent our community on a National level,” Orozco said.
