Put on your jazziest attire and help us honor Patricia Robledo for the Spirit of East Tennessee Award at the second annual Biscuits & Bubbly.

Patricia Robledo is Knox County School’s first Latino community outreach specialist, a role in which she is working to increase engagement and improve communication with Spanish-speaking families and others who are not fluent in English. Robledo, who immigrated with her family from Colombia to the US at the age of 17 with limited English proficiency, understands the challenges and opportunities for Spanish-speaking families and immigrants.

Robledo is the founder of Robledo Translations, a local translation / interpretation business, and previously served as the City of Knoxville’s business and development liaison. She was also a founding member of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of East Tennessee. Robledo has served on many non-profit boards and was in the inaugural class of the Lonsdale Community School Volunteer Hall of Fame in recognition of her role with a Girl Scout troop in Lonsdale.
