Margarita E. Nelson

Credentialed Cooperative Director

District 4A

Del Rio, TX

Margarita and David Nelson retired, sold their home in Carrizo Springs, and moved to Del Rio. They have six children and eleven grandchildren! While previously serving on the Rio Grande Electric Cooperative (RGEC) board, Margarita became a Certified Credentialed Director through the NRECA. She retired from Carrizo Springs Consolidated Independent School District, where she served as the High School Principal’s secretary for 21 years. Her duties included managing the school’s budget, extracurricular funds, and office administration. Margarita also worked for the district’s Federal Programs and District translator for three years before retiring with 24 years of service. She feels that her previous years of experience as director will be an asset for RGEC. Margarita looks forward to serving the co-op in any way she can.
