My name is Leroy Garcia and I was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  I started my career working with CampFire USA and the YMCA of Central New Mexico recreation programs with children ages 5-15. I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from New Mexico Highlands University.  After completing my degree, I worked as an investigator for child protective services in Roswell, New Mexico for a year.  I returned home to work with Molina Healthcare for several years completing health risk assessments both on the phone and in person at various high risk locations to find members who were hard to locate in Albuquerque. My focus has always been to build strong community connections through partnerships, collaborations, and community outreach. As a Scholarship Coach for the ECECD Program, I am excited to give back to the community I have served in a different capacity. As an alumni of CNM, I remember the day to day struggle. I look forward to helping students achieve their goals and be a part of their educational journey.

Leroy Garcia is primary contact for the following students:
