At a school board meeting earlier this month, the three trustees who are leaving the school board were honored for their four years of service.
State Senator Ellen Corbett presented Hermy Almonte, Carmen Sullivan, and Morgan Mack-Rose with a special resolution and thanked them for their dedication.
Also at the board meeting, Mayor Stephen Cassidy and City Councilmember Pauline Cutter (both former school board trustees) presented certificates of commendation to them for their collaboration with the city, and their service to the schools and the community.
Superintendent Cindy Cathey thanked each of the trustees for their “ongoing commitment and dedication to the education and welfare of all students” and she presented each with a hand-painted glass apple as a token of esteem and appreciation.
The next board meeting is scheduled for Dec. 4, and it will be preceded by a reception at 5:30 p.m. to welcome the newly elected board members — Corina Lopez, Vince Rosato, and Jason Toro and re-elected board member Diana Prola. The new members will take office at the first of the year.
In other school news, the school district announced the upcoming “San Leandro’s Got Talent” show.
