  • Ruth Lara started as a parent volunteer when her firstborn son was in Pre-K at Tom C. Gooch Elementary in Dallas ISD.  Her volunteer service and experience with UPS as part of the Human Resources department led Ruth to become a Pre-K teacher's assistant at Marcus Leadership Academy in 2012--a position she held until being promoted to Community Liaison in 2015.  After a year of dedicated service as the Community Liaison, Mrs. Lara was promoted to Office Manager in 2016 and has excelled in the position ever since.

    Ruth Lara is an active member of the community co-pastoring with her family at First Dallas Church in Dallas, Texas.  Her love and passion is to serve others.
