Neighbor Ethel Pedraza has been appointed to the KWA board of directors to fill the unexpired term of departing member Jim Johnson, Jr.

A long-time member of the King William Association, Ethyl is retired from a local distributing company. She has lived in her Mission St. home for over 50 years and graduated from Brackenridge High School. Her hobbies include membership in two bicycle touring groups. In one she has toured in United States, Canada and Europe. She is also co-chair of the annual LBJ 100 Bicycle Tour sponsored by Friends of the LBJ National Historic Park. The tour, which began in 2007, is a major fund raiser for the park.

Ethel says that her goal as a board member is to maintain the historic character of our neighborhood.
