Celebrating the Life of Dr. Yolanda Romero

Celebrating the Life of Dr. Yolanda Romero

It is with a heavy heart we announce the passing of Dr. Yolanda Romero. With 26 years of dedication and service to the North Lake family, she was committed to her students in the classroom and through her advisement of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK).

Among her various awards, she was the first Mexican American woman to earn a Ph.D. in the State of Texas. We will always remember and admire her passion for educating others.

  1. What a wonderful lady she was with so much compassion and caring for everyone and especially students. What a great loss to the college, the community, the world. Rest in peace sweet sister.

  2. Dr Yolanda Romero was such a fine Lady, the most wonderful sister-in-law in our lives. She touched many, many hearts she leaves behind a wonderful LEGACY THAT WILL NEVER, EVER BE FORGOTTEN. THE LOVE SHE HAD FOR TEACHING & FOR HER STUDENTS WAS AMAZING. LOVE YOU JOLLY &WILL MISS YOU TREMENDOUSLY. YOU WILL LIVE FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS.

  3. I started North Lake College in the early 1990’s. Dr. Romero was my history teacher for 2 semesters. I was a single mother with a small child and would get discouraged at finishing school. She told me her story and the hardships she endured and told me to never give up. Because of her encouragement, I became a school teacher and have now taught 16 years. She was my son’s adviser for PTK at North Lake College. I am heart broken to hear of this news and my prayers go out to the family. She was a special lady who loved her students and the North Lake family. I will never forget her.
