Welcome Noelia & Bennito

We are excited to welcome two new HANCSM board members: Noelia Corzo and Bennito Angeles.

Bennito Angeles has lived in North Central for over 20 years and has been active with HANCSM for over one decade! He coaches soccer and you will often find him on the King Center field. He’s a “workaholic” and runs a house-cleaning business that serves many neighborhoods in our county.  His priority on the board is to educate neighbors about keeping our streets clean.

Noelia Corzo was born and raised in North Central. She is a graduate of our local public schools and is an involved PTA mom at Fiesta Gardens where her son attends school. Noelia has been life-long community advocate for social justice and she works as a social worker, serving the special needs community in San Mateo County.  Her goal on the HANCSM board is to increase community engagement and participation to improve our schools and neighborhood. (Also you will see her name on the Nov. 7th ballot).
