daughter, Paulita Flores, but Ibarra intends on completing her degree. Paulita’s father, Josh Flores, is a teacher at Waite High School in Toledo; he is the advisor to Waite HS’s Spanish Club.

Ibarra, who is bilingual, was the Latino liaison of the Alliance of Construction Professionals (ACP), in an intensified program to recruit minorities into the trades. She was then promoted to director of Work Force Development at AGC.
