JFK Site Coordinator
JFK Site Coordinator
Communities in Schools of the Coastal Bend has partnered with the West Oso ISD once again to help bring this amazing and important program to the district at all four campuses. I am very excited and fortunate to be able to work for such an amazing school district that cares about the success of the students.

My name is Deborah Vega, and I am the site coordinator at John F. Kennedy Elementary. I was born in Corpus Christi, but we moved to Robstown, Texas when I was little and we made it our home town. I earned my bachelors in Community and Mental Health with a minor in Social Work from Texas A&M University- Corpus Christi.

This is my second year working in the West Oso Independent School District. I am grateful to have a awesome principal and administrative staff at John F. Kennedy Elementary. We as a team will do whatever it takes to make our kids successful in life.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at 361-806-5920 ext. 216 or email me at
