Councilman Isaac Barron was born in Las Vegas on November 5, 1969 to Mexican immigrants, Agustin and Isabel, the second youngest of five children. He attended C.C.S.D. area schools C.C. Ronnow Elementary, Quannah McCall Sixth Grade Center, Jim Bridger Jr. High, and graduated from Rancho High in 1987. Isaac attended the Community College of Southern Nevada (CSN) and graduated from University Nevada Las Vegas with a B.S. in Education in 1994. In 2004 he received a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from Nova Southeastern University. Isaac took his first teaching job at French Ford Middle School in Winnemucca, Nevada in 1995, where he taught English Language Learners (ELL) for two years before returning to teach at Rancho High in 1997. Since that time, Isaac has taught everything from ELL to Social Studies. In addition to teaching high school students, he’s also taught Adult Education for C.C.S.D. since 1997.
Isaac has long been a community activist and advocate for North Las Vegas youth, mentoring students after school and leading volunteer efforts for community improvement projects. He’s been the advisor for the Hispanic Student Union at Rancho High for thirteen years. He’s also coached boys and girls soccer for the Rams. In June of 2013, Barron became the first ever Hispanic elected to the North Las Vegas City Council. He represents Ward 1, which has the largest Hispanic population in North Las Vegas. Through his work on the city council, Isaac hopes to help stabilize the city’s finances, rebrand the city, and get more people involved in local government.
