Partner, Pillsbury Law
Armando Castro has been a part of the HNBF since 2006. At that time he joined the Foundation to assist with its audit committee and he became the Treasurer shortly thereafter.
“It was not difficult for me to want to become a part of the HNBF. Everything I have is the result of my education. Joining an organization with a stated mission to ‘help Hispanics achieve their potential through access to higher education’ was a very easy decision for me. The work we do is very meaningful to me. In my opinion we provide our students and members with insights and information to help them obtain the higher education needed for access into the professional world after graduation.”
