COORDINATING COUNCIL COLUMN

Article by Helen Richmond

Menifee Union School District Superintendent Dr. Steve Kennedy was the guest

speaker at the September Coordinating Council meeting. He recognized Discovery

Day plans were talked about and everyone was assured that detailed information

would be available and distributed after the final planning meeting which is scheduled

on September 27th.

School Board Member Bob O’Donnell. Mr. O’Donnell has served the Menifee School

Board for over 35 years and he also served as the Sun City Post Master for 35 years.

Dr. Kennedy said that Bob was a steady voice of reason as Board dynamics changed

with each election.

Dr. Kennedy went on to say that he looked forward to his annual check-in with the

Sun City Community and to assure his audience that they are never taken for granted

and always appreciated for their contributions to the City and School District. He

shared a story about a student from Quail Valley who, in spite of hardships in her life,

took her elementary school’s theme of “no excuses” seriously, applied it to her life and

later graduated from Paloma Valley High School as valedictorian, won a four-year full

scholarship to one of California’s Universities, and is studying applied physics. He

also shared that property for the 4 th middle school has been purchased near La Ladera

Park.

The Swim Show representative shared the Club’s activities which include swimming

lessons, water exercise classes, and the annual swim show. Everyone was urged to

attend this year’s show on October 4 and 5, and to participate in Discovery Day

activities on October 5.

To allow all the club representatives to participate in Discovery Day activities, there

will be no Coordinating Council meeting in October. The next meeting will be

November 1, 2019 at 9:30 am with social time at 9:00. This will be a very important

meeting as planning for 2020 begins.

Tubb. In Blues, I've played the Jerry Walker Five in

LA and Kenny Jackson in Memphis.
