Biographical Note

Hilda Solis grew up in La Puente, California. She was the first of her family to attend college, studying Political Science at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. While a student, she used the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP), government grants, and a part time job to cover the cost of school. The EOP is a program designed to assist low–income, first–generation college students by providing grants, advising, and tutoring. She graduated in 1979 with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. Solis then attended the University of Southern California and earned a Master's degree in Public Administration in 1981.
Hilda Solis's reputation for serving people began before she entered politics. While an EOP student, Hilda worked for the program as a student assistant recruiter and also as a summer orientation leader for Cal Poly Pomona. While attending Cal Poly, Hilda Solis's academic advisor and was Dr. Jose Vadi. He described Solis's political career and how it resonates with how he remembers her as a student:
"She always had this sort of concern for people who didn’t have much, people who weren’t born with a silver spoon in their mouth. But I would have never predicted that she would be a member of the Cabinet. She is a rather quiet person, so when you think of a politician you think of someone who is extroverted, talks a lot. I thought she was so quiet that she didn’t have the fire–in–the–belly, really, to be a politician. But, I think I was wrong." (Dr. Jose Vadi, October 20th, 2009) Hilda Solis's career began shortly after graduating from the University of Southern California. In 1985, she was elected to the Board of Trustees for Rio Hondo College. She served on the board until 1991 when she took the opportunity to run for the California State Assembly when California re-established districts. Hilda Solis focused on door to door campaigning and was elected as an Assemblywoman. While serving in the Assembly, Solis became one of the stongest voices in the immigration debate. She backed a controversial bill to enforce a court ruling that undocumented immigrants may attend college if they had established California residency. She also participated in a committee in the Assembly on groundwater contamination and landfill leakage, and served on the committees of higher education, environmental safety, and labor and unemployment.
Due to term limits in the California State Assembly, Hilda Solis ran for the U.S. House of Representatives in 2000. After her victory, Solis became the Congresswoman for California’s 32nd District, which includes parts of Los Angeles County from East Los Angeles to West Covina. She was reelected for additional terms in 2002, 2004, and 2006 by very large margins. As a Congresswoman, Hilda Solis was known for prioritizing labor, immigration and environmental issues. Specifically, her work towards environmental justice won her significant recognition. Hilda Solis was the first woman to be awarded with the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award in 2000.
In December 2008, President Barack Obama announced his intention to nominate Solis as the next United States Secretary of Labor. She took office after being confirmed by the United States Senate in February 2009, becoming the first Hispanic woman to serve as Secretary in a U.S. Cabinet. Hilda Solis, as the Head of the Department of Labor, will continue serving the people of America with the same passion for service she showed as a student at Cal Poly Pomona.
