Wilmer Chavarria

Wilmer has made education a passion of his from the start and is committed to making education the best it can be, especially for underserved communities.

He is currently a principal in Vermont while pursuing his second master’s in education policy at Harvard University. He is the former principal of Fairview Elementary School in Española, the largest primary school in the area, and a former English Language Arts teacher at Española Valley High School. He is also a Thomas J. Watson fellow and Davis Scholar. After graduating high school in Nicaragua, he attended the University of Central America for Industrial Engineering, the Pearson United World College in British Columbia, Earlham College in Indiana, and the University of New Mexico for Educational Leadership.

He looks forward to continuing to be of support to his loved Northern New Mexico community whether from near or afar. Being part of the LANL Foundation family is a privilege and a responsibility he cherishes.
