Throughout March, I’ve been reflecting on the power of women in leadership. I’m proud that more and more of our elected and business leaders – especially those in the Sacramento region - are female and hope that we can continue on this trajectory.
College admissions are coming in and we are very proud to report that our Sac High seniors have already been accepted to over 130 universities! These include several Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) such as Alabama A&M University, Delaware State University, and Claflin University as well as top schools in California including Cal Poly Pomona, Cal Poly Humboldt, and UC Riverside. Now the hard part begins – deciding where to go!
Step inside Underground Books, the “literary hub of Oak Park” and you’ll likely meet its manager, Georgia West, better known as Mother Rose. The nickname, bestowed by her son, former Mayor Kevin Johnson, explains her role in the community. She grew up in Oak Park, attended Sac High, and saw the neighborhood’s only library close in the 1970s. After graduating from Sacramento City College’s nursing program, she worked as a registered nurse for 26 years.
AnZhane Burrell was very involved when she attended Sac High playing volleyball and participating in student government, including being Senior Class President. On top of that she had excellent grades and made the Dean’s List. Throughout her time at Sac High, AnZhane said there was a standard of excellence that was expected of all students.
