Second UniServ director appointed in Alpine Education Association

The Alpine UniServ has appointed Thomas M. Stauss as UniServ director and organizing specialist. Stauss joins Executive UniServ Director Glenda Anderson serving the educators in Alpine School District.

Stauss has held several roles in public education including Human Resources administrator in Washoe County (Nevada) School District; UniServ director for the Nevada State Education Association; and executive Director for the Washoe Education Association.

“I’m excited to join and be a part of an outstanding Alpine Education Association leadership team,” said Stauss. “I’m particularly excited to be able to advocate for and provide support to our AEA members, as well as assist in growing our membership. I’ve been involved in education for many years, and being a member of the AEA, UEA, and NEA, has never been more important than it is today.”

Stauss has a Bachelor of Arts in Human Resources with a Training and Development Emphasis. He participated in the National Education Association UniServ Academy and Leader Organizer Training at the UC Berkeley Labor Center, in addition to many NEA seminars and trainings.

The newly created AEA UniServ position is funded in part by a grant from the National Education Association.
