Virginia DuPuy serves as volunteer executive director for the Greater Waco Community Education Alliance, a vision which grew out of her five years of service as Mayor of the City of Waco (2005-2010).
Virginia holds Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees from Baylor University and is a life-long community leader. In a career that has spanned through public, private and civic sectors, Virginia's unique experience and extensive community knowledge is a perfect fit for the Greater Waco Community Education Alliance.
