“I believe in United Way because it’s an effective organization in helping meet the needs of others. It’s been very effective in getting together diverse groups, identifying problems within our community and providing leadership and solving those problems.”
Alberto was the first Latino to serve as White House Counsel. He comes from modest beginnings as one of eight children in a small town outside of Houston, Texas, and believes education should remain a top priority in Nashville. He’s a strong supporter of United Way initiatives that prepare students for the first day of school. “This is the start of a new journey for them. We want them to know they’re fully supported.”
