Cynthia Selde, Board Secretary

Originally from the Pacific Northwest, Board Secretary Cynthia Selde traveled to Mexico after a year of college at the University of Washington and ended up living, studying, and working in Mexico for many years. She worked in economic and social development and education. Cynthia's daughter was born and raised in Mexico City.

Cynthia is very passionate about the importance of high-quality education for every individual, from birth to old age, and about the crucial need to build a stronger, inclusive community, in which every single human being is valued and given the support they need to thrive.


One curious thing Cynthia can’t explain: She seems to have left her sense of direction back in Mexico. Although she had no problem living in a huge city like Mexico City, she is constantly getting lost here in Walla Walla!
