I'm excited to combine my diverse communications experiences with my education background to promote Stand's work.

It’s with a heavy heart we announce the passing of Member Leader and great friend Hector Conde.

Hector grew up in Cali, Colombia, and is a father to Juan Camilo and Isabela. He became involved with Stand for Children back in 2012 when he met Stand’s then-organizer Giovanny Valencia. At the time, Hector’s daughter was a junior at East Boston High School.

Although his children had finished school and grown up, Hector continued to advocate for the children of Massachusetts. He was always willing to roll up his sleeves and get involved in any campaign that would support quality education. Hector attended events, delivered testimony, spoke at our Member Summit and did this in a very sharp suit.

He was so kind and always full of life and laughter, greeting everyone with either a hug or handshake. He will be missed by all.
