Dallas, Texas


Originally from Buffalo, NY, Alicia McGlinchey is a former practicing attorney and a long-time education advocate and community volunteer, who has lived in North Texas for almost 30 years.

Alicia has broad experience serving on a variety of civic and non-profit boards and committees, including six years on the Bedford City Council. She’s been a board member for the Hurst-Euless-Bedford Education Foundation since 2008, including four years as Board Chair. During her tenure the foundation revamped governance, processes, and financial controls, improved board engagement, enhanced its community profile and significantly broadened its base of support.

Alicia maintains strong ties with her alma mater, Georgetown University, as an alumni interviewer, a board member for the local DFW Alumni Club and as the Texas Regional Coordinator for the Georgetown Scholars Program (GSP) serving low income and first-generation students.

From 2015 to 2019, Alicia was the Director of Development at Teaching Trust, a Dallas-based non-profit training and coaching school principals and leadership teams, working to build leadership capacity in under-resourced public schools. Deepening her knowledge and passion for educational equity, Alicia participated in Leadership ISD’s Civic Voices Fellowship in 2017 and now serves as Vice Chair of the Leadership ISD Board.

Alicia is a graduate of Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service and UT Law School. She and her husband Kevin raised their three children in the Mid-Cities area and are now empty nesters living in Dallas.
