We are very pleased to have Mr. Ricardo Rios as the guest speaker for our Rotary Club meeting on January 26, 2021. Mr. Rios is the Head Band Director/Fine Arts Coordinator at Del Rio High School. 
 
Ricardo Rios is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin. He taught two years at Fulmore Middle School in Austin before coming to Del Rio in 1991. He became the director of the San Felipe 7th Grade Band and accomplished the 1st ever UIL Sweepstakes Award in the school’s history in 1993. The band was then a consistent UIL winner since that point on under his direction for 16 years. In 2007, Mr. Rios moved up to the high school to become the 2nd assistant and he took the 2nd band to their first ever UIL Sweepstakes award that same school year. Mr. Rios then became the head band director in 2011 and a few years later also took on the title of Fine Arts Coordinator to oversee all fine arts programs in the school district. The Del Rio High School Mighty Ram Band made history again in 2020 by making its first ever appearance at the UIL State Marching Finals at the Alamodome. Mr. Rios was able to compile a great team of teachers to achieve this long-sought goal. Ricardo Rios is married to Claudia Rios and they have 4 daughters – Karina, Karla, Karen, and Karyme.
 
Please join me in welcoming Mr. Rios to our meeting!
