Trisha Garcia

My name is Trisha Garcia, but most people call me Trish. I'm one of this year's Next Generation Co-Chairs, as well as a Trustee on USW Local 8599's Executive Board. As the youngest member of the Executive Board, I proudly represent our Next Gen. I am the first Next Gen member to be elected since our committee began and I know I won't be the last. I'm also a Next Gen organizer, former flyer creater, and part of the community outreach and social media teams. I started with Fontana Unified School District in 2014 as a School Site Aide, Substitute Teacher's Aide, and now Intermediate Clerk Typist at North Tamarind Elementary. Go Cougars! What I enjoy most about my job is helping others. The other committees I'm currently on are Legislation & Education, Civil Rights, and Women of Steel. I'm also a delegate for the Inland Empire Labor Council. I enjoy volunteering in my free time because I want to know that I've made a positive difference in the world. I love to read inspirational books, travel (They also call me Tour Guide Barbie), watch my favorite teams play, and add to my Wonder Woman & Peanuts collections.
Two quotes that I live by are:
"A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives." -Jackie Robinson
"True wealth is not measured in money or status or power. It is measured in the legacy we leave behind for those we love and those we inspire." -Cesar Chavez
