Meeting October 26 - Nick Melvoin
Events Upcoming Meetings and More
Meeting October 26 - Nick Melvoin

Nick Melvoin was recently elected as the District 4 member on the Los Angeles Unified School District. His election was a stunning upset of Steve Zimmer who was the LAUSD Board President. The campaign was a hard fought, bitter and expensive, but casted Melvoin as a reform candidate who declared that kids in the LAUSD are not reaching their potential because of a district that puts bureaucrats ahead of kids.

Nick is a native of the Brentwood area and started his career as a LAUSD teacher. Melvoin represents change and shows that a candidate with a message can still win a crucial election although being significantly outspent.

Meeting November 2 - Rev. Michael Mandala

Image result for Michael MandalaFr. Michael Mandala, S.J., is President of Verbum Dei High School in Watts. Verbum Dei is part of the Jesuit Cristo Rey program that started in Chicago in the 1990's.  The young men, mostly minorities who would not otherwise finish high school, are taught in a very rigorous academic environment, but are released to work in an office-type job one day a week. These programs have had amazing results.

Fr. Mandala is a Southern California native but has a vast experience in education throughout California.
