Rodriguez went through the Hermiston schools and graduated from Hermiston High School in 2005. He was hired in 2010 as an HHS teacher and moved into administration at ALMS in 2019.

“Now two years through a global pandemic, HSD continues to focus on the future, our students,” said Mooney. “Planning for next school year, it is critical that the building principals share the same values and passion for Hermiston students. Mr. Rodriguez is familiar with district systems and has established relationships throughout the community.”
