Changing of the guard


I know this isn't a very artistic picture but it demonstrates something that has happened here in Downey this spring. You see, these portraits are just a few of the over 80 superintendents in Los Angeles county. Their portraits hang in the main hallway of Los Angeles County Office of Education. Dr. Wendy Doty's picture used to hang here between Culver City USD and Duarte USD. Dr. Doty has retired after 30 years of service in the Downey Unified School District. Ten of those years were spent as the district's superintendent. To commemorate what she did for the children of Downey and the city of Downey, East Middle School will be renamed Doty Middle School.

Dr. John Garcia Jr. has been hired as the new superintendent as of April 1 and his portrait will hang here soon. You can see his bio here
