LA CROSSE, Wis. – Western Technical College’s Juan Jimenez has recently been named one of Wisconsin’s 46 most influential Latino leaders, according to Madison 365, a nonprofit online news source based in Madison.

Jimenez currently serves as the associate dean of Health and Public Safety at Western, a position he took on in late 2022.

Juan also volunteers in his community by serving as President of the District of La Crosse School Board. He spent several years as a math educator in rural Wisconsin and continues to serve on several educational, philanthropic, and volunteering organizations.

“It is hard to put into words the feelings I had when I was notified of this recognition.
