Armando was recently promoted to the Treasurer of Common Ground Worldwide's Board of Directors.

Armando is a Broadcast Journalism major at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. His passion is providing others the opportunity to express themselves. He plans to go to law school after college to pursue a career in Media and Communications Law.
