Recognition of Paulette Zades, Grant School Principal

This past July, our Compassion Ministry chairs, Misao Kusuda (far left) and Mary Leano (far right) recognized Principal Paulette Zades (second from left), for all her work and support which was key to building our relationship with Grant Elementary School. It led to our school supply drive, our tutorial program, joint dinners, cultural exchanges and our food distribution program to Grant families. She is retiring but noted, "I’m retiring, but I’m not leaving” and hopes to maintain her connection with us. Integral to our relationship and our Food Distribution program is the work of Lillian Flores, second from right) who is in charge of the school’s food program and is the Family Liaison. She keeps us connected with our Grant families.
