For Billy Lagal, senior coordinator of the University of Houston-Victoria Letting Education Achieve Dreams initiative, the university has been a part of who he is for nearly a decade.

Now Lagal will have the opportunity to represent UHV staff as chairman of the 2012-13 Staff Council, an organization that represents staff in university matters. Among his duties, he will represent the staff on the UHV President's Cabinet and sit on the University System Staff Executive Council.

Lagal earned his bachelor's degree in communication from UHV in 2006 and is enrolled in UHV's Master of Education in adult and higher education program.

Lagal was a LEAD recruiter for UHV at the UH System at Cinco Ranch before relocating to the Victoria campus. Having worked at multiple UHV teaching sites, he understands this unique dynamic and is attuned with the concerns and successes of each site.

"As a LEAD coordinator, it's my job to assist freshmen through the early stages of their college career, but that is only one part of the university," Lagal said. "I'm ready to contribute more and am happy to be working with this great group of staff members."

Joining Lagal on the 2012-13 Staff Council will be the following staff members:
