College and Career Advisor
My name is Richard Maez and I am very excited to be joining the George community as a College and Career Advisor! I grew up in southwest Denver as the oldest of three with two loving parents who told me that education was how I could make a difference in the world. As a first generation student I utilized my counselor as well as the Denver Scholarship Foundation Future Center to navigate the chaotic world that is high school and the college and scholarship application process. With the support of my family and the guidance of my teachers and counselors, I was able to attend the University of Denver on a full ride scholarship, where I received my bachelors in History and Spanish and my masters in Curriculum and Instruction. Before coming to George, I worked at DU in the Office of Student Engagement running the undergraduate orientation program. I am a passionate change agent for educational access and equity, ensuring student success throughout their four years of high school and beyond, and cannot wait to support the Patriots in high school and beyond!
