JOSÉ LUIS SOLACHE, Vice-Chairperson

José Luis Solache was appointed to the Lynwood Unified School District’s Personnel Commission, as the Board’s Appointee, for a three-year term, with his term initiating December 2014.  

Mr. Solache comes to the Lynwood USD Personnel Commission as an alumnus of the Lynwood public educational system, and now community member.  Thus, Mr. Solache’s first-hand experience allows him to identify the District’s needs and participate in the process of providing a quality education that prepares students to be integrally contributing community members, both in pursuing education and careers.

Prior to serving as a Commissioner for the Lynwood USD, Mr. Solache served on the Lynwood USD Board of Education, since 2003 through 2013.  Upon his election to the Lynwood USD Board of Education, Mr. Solache made history as the youngest serving Latino Board Member for the Lynwood Unified School District. While in his role of Board Member, Mr. Solache demonstrated true dedication to the Lynwood USD public educational system, offering his time to serve as Board President for three years of his tenure.

In 2013, in his continuing effect to be responsive to the community’s needs, Mr. Solache transitioned his public service to the Lynwood City Council.  Thus, in addition to his service on the Lynwood USD Personnel Commission, Mr. Solache simultaneously serves on the Lynwood City Council, and currently dedicates his time to Lynwood City as the Mayor.

Both as a public servant, and personally, Mr. Solache is dedicated to educational advancement, first graduating from California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH), with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies, with an option in Spanish. After completing his studies at CSUDH, Mr. Solache is now pursuing his Masters of Arts degree at the University of Southern California, while concurrently serving as the Director of Community and Government Relations for a local non-profit organization.

Mr. Solache’s desire to serve his community emerged at an early age, while attending CSUDH. In addition to pursuing his education, Mr. Solache also served as Student Body President for two terms, followed by winning a statewide election to chair the largest student-run organization in California–the California State Student Association (CSSA). As chairman of CSSA, Mr. Solache served and protected access and affordability to a quality public higher education for the under-served communities in California

Mr. Solache’s commitment to improving the Lynwood community is demonstrated not only through his multiple public servant positions, but also through his hard work and dedication, within his different roles. His aptitude for leadership and predisposition for genuine, sincere service are the characteristics that shape who he is – a public servant committed to improving the lives of the children, and people, in the community.
