Kingsville works hard to provide a fair judicial process and I am honored to have been a part of it. I was appointed as Director/Chief Probation Officer by the 105th Judicial District Court in 1990 and served in that capacity for 20 years, serving Kleberg and Kenedy County. I served as a Probation Officer for 8 years for Kleberg and Kenedy County and retired as Director for Adult and Juvenile Probation on December 31, 2010. I have taught Criminology classes at Texas A&M University-Kingsville as an adjunct faculty instructor since 1998.

Born on December 19, 1955 in Rio Grande City, I attended schools in the San Isidro Independent School District, graduating in 1974. I earned my degree in political science, journalism and Spanish from Texas A&I University in 1977, and later graduated from Texas A&I University with a Masters in Sociology and Political Science in 1986. I have also completed the Professional Mediation Training, Mediation Basic Training, and Family Mediation Training, a State Bar approved 66 hour certification program from Sam Houston State University, in Huntsville, Texas.

Noel is married to Diana Guerrero-Pena, Principal at Kleberg Elementary.
