President-Elect


Pablo Muirhead, Wisconsin Association for Foreign Language Teachers (WAFLT)

In addition to his role as the Chair of the Associate of Arts & Science Programs at Milwaukee Area Technical College, he also served as the ACTFL Treasurer and was a member of his local school board. These similar, yet distinct, positions overlap and inform one another. He has been invited to testify to committees on education in the Wisconsin State Legislature and has built strong relationships with his local and state elected officials. He has also helped lead the last two Wisconsin delegations at JNCL during Advocacy Days. Read more!
