Marisol Ibarra appointed to LCIC


Last week, Toledo Mayor-elect Carty Finkbeiner, recommended that five individuals, including himself, be appointed to the Lucas County Improvement Corp. (LCIC) Board. 


All were appointed, including Marisol Ibarra, Director of Work Force Development of the Associated General Contractors of Northwest Ohio.


Ms. Ibarra, who was born in San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora, México, has a colorful past. At the age of 12 she moved with her family to Yuma, Arizona; after completing her secondary education, at the age of 18, she struck out on her own, moving to California.


From California, she moved to Colorado, Kentucky, and finally to Ohio in 2001, to attend Bowling Green State University. After her freshman year, she transferred to the University of Toledo.


She took a break from school to raise her precocious 4-year-old daughter, Paulita Flores, but intends are going back to complete her degree. Paulita’s father, Josh Flores, is a successful teacher at Waite High School in Toledo.



Ms. Ibarra, who is bilingual, was recruited by Bill Brennan (President of the Alliance of Construction Professionals) and staff, to act as ACP’s Latino liaison, in an intensified program to recruit minorities into the trades.


She was then promoted to director of Work Force Development at AGC.
