Congratulations, Mr. Zimmer

July 2, 2009

Congratulations to EVU’s very own Steve Zimmer, as he begins his tenure as an elected member of the Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education. As the Board member from School District Four, Steve represents a huge region, which extends from the Western San Fernando Valley, through the Westside, extends south toward LAX, and reaches east toward Downtown. 

Steve’s level of commitment and dedication to the students, parents and families of LAUSD may be a revelation to others; but for those of us who have been touched by nearly two decades of his service to John Marshall High School and Elysian Valley United, it’s just Mr. Zimmer being Mr. Zimmer.

Good Luck, Steve, and God Bless.
