Teachers and parents gathered on the stage of La Cañada High School’s auditorium Tuesday night to be recognized for going above and beyond the call of duty at the La Cañada Council of PTA’s Founders Day Award ceremony.
An annual event, Founders Day honors specific teachers and parents in the La Cañada Unified School District for contributing to the district’s success. This year’s recipients earned their way into the spotlight for a variety of different reasons.
Teachers were honored for promoting excellence within their programs, and parents were singled out for their generosity in donating their time, skills and efforts to their respective PTAs.
One of the recipients was Sam Picture, who’s only been teaching at LCHS 7/8 for six months. Despite his short tenure, Picture has made such an impact on students and parents that he received more Founders Day nominations than anyone else in the La Cañada High 7/8’s PTA.
