Pascual A. Rodriguez, Arts ’97

Laurene HeybachPascual Rodriguez graduated from Marquette after earning both his bachelor’s degree in sociology and education and one of the most important awards bestowed upon students, the Leadership Award for Outstanding Contribution to Community Service from the Division of Student Affairs.

Since then, Pascual has made education his life’s vocation and has committed to serving children in Milwaukee’s Hispanic and Southside communities.

While earning a master’s degree, Pascual worked as a social studies teacher at Milwaukee’s Bay View High School and served as an adviser for the United Latino Club. He was named assistant principal at Bruce Guadalupe Community School in 2001, and then principal in 2002.

He oversees operations at this charter school that is sponsored by the United Community Center, and he enjoys witnessing the growth of students as they change from adolescents to adults. “Nothing is more fulfilling than experiencing the educational development of students. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with such a reputable agency and to contribute to the educational advancement of students within the Hispanic community,” he says.

Pascual is president of the Felix Mantilla Little League Baseball program that involves approximately 400 neighborhood children. In addition to serving his community through education and sports, Pascual is an active volunteer. He served as chair of the St. Patrick’s Parish Pastoral Council and is a member of Milwaukee’s Cultural Artistic and Musical Program Advisory Committee.

His contributions to the community were honored in 2003 when Pascual was awarded one of The Business Journal of Milwaukee’s “40 under 40” awards, in recognition of professional achievement before the age of 40.
