I was thrilled to have recently been named as a member of the Los Angeles Unified School District Hall of Fame. I was one of six alumni selected to represent Carson High School and I am very, very humbled to have been nominated by my fellow Colts. My council colleagues were very gracious in recognizing me for this honor at a Lakewood Celebrates.
I am also very excited that Lakewood residents and businesses have continued to support the Lakewood Education Foundation that grew from our earlier efforts to create a Lakewood Unified School District. Over the past 16 years, we have given grants to 1,243 teachers totaling $509,056.73 and significantly improved the quality of education for a generation of Lakewood students.
We will begin our annual fundraising efforts with a fireworks stand at Carson Street and Los Coyotes Diagonal in July and also hold our golf tournament again in October at Lakewood Country Club. Donations can be made year-round on the City of Lakewood website, www.lakewoodcity.org. We'd be honored to have your support.
