Several teachers were honored March 21 at a Teacher Tribute
sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The teachers were
selected because they had made a positive influence on a senior Mormon student’s
life.

 

Assemblyman Cameron Smyth and Santa Clarita Councilman Bob
Kellar were among the dignitaries there to thank the teachers for their
dedication and service.
