Farewell and thanks to two Trustees

On Thursday night, the Board of Trustees passed two resolutions honoring the retirement of Trustees Tamara Wilson and Jose Gutiérrez, Jr.

Some of their accomplishments include:

Tamara WilsonIn four years, Ms. Wilson championed a new school and naming it after an undocumented immigrant, José Antonio Vargas. She acknowledged the strength in our community’s diversity by supporting a safe haven for all families; and she provided support for the Measure B Parcel Tax campaign and the Measure T bond campaign, for the benefit of all of our students.

In five years, Mr. Gutiérrez provided support for the Measure B Parcel Tax campaign and the Measure T bond campaign, and effective oversight for implementation of Measure G. He advocated for the most vulnerable and underrepresented student populations in the district and created Cafecitos. He served as the Board liaison to the District Advisory Committee, Mountain View Educational Foundation, and District English Language Advisory Committee.

We are grateful for their time, representation of the community, and late Thursday nights!
