The 87th annual PTA Council Founder’s Day Awards Ceremony, titled “Celebrate! It’s a Red, White & Blue Salute to our Hometown Heroes,” was held recently in Huntington Middle School’s Kenneth White auditorium. The San Marino community helped celebrate the district’s Honorary Service Award recipients, who were selected at each school and by the PTA Council for their outstanding volunteerism to both their schools and the greater community. Awardees included Carver Elementary School: Kathy Osegueda, Marci Wendling and Izumi Suzuki; Valentine Elementary School: Chun-Yen Chen, Anna-Maria Grizzell and Angela Sze; Huntington Middle School: Jason Dawes, Zillah Tobiano and Don Duranso; SMHS: Lainnie Capouya, Diane Comi and Cynthia Chubbuck; and PTA Council: Michele Canon, Sgt. Robert Matthews and Scott Barton. The event was co-chaired by Kim Sutherland and Homeira Asghari.
