Educational Foundation to Host State of the Schools Oct. 1

The school year is off to an unusual but productive start in Glendale, and the Glendale Educational Foundation stands ready to support high-quality instruction and community engagement.
In partnership with the Glendale Unified School District, GEF will host its first virtual convening and fundraiser, the 16th annual State of the Schools on Oct. 1. The event will be broadcast on Charter 15, U-verse 99 and streamed live on GEF’s Facebook page.
Jennifer Cano has joined GEF as its new executive director. Cano is a youth development professional with more than 20 years of experience in K-12 education policy, expanded learning and civic engagement. Before joining GEF, she served at the United Way of Greater Los Angeles and L.A.’s BEST After School Enrichment Program in senior management positions. She began her education career as a high school teacher in Alhambra and as an elementary teacher in San Francisco.
“I am thrilled for the opportunity to work with the GEF community to further develop its robust partnerships,” said Cano. “I am a teacher at heart and very excited to support a diverse school community served by a remarkable array of public schools.”
