  • Attorney-turned-Cal High Educator Named 2017-18 Teacher of the Year

    Before becoming an English teacher at California High School, Lori Davies spent 12 years as a successful corporate lawyer, analyzing writs, combing over legal briefs and winning cases for her clients. But it was her passion for transforming the lives of students through teaching that led her to transition from the courtroom to the classroom. Now after 15 years as an educator, Davies is equally successful at administering exams, reviewing common assessments and teaching the works of Steinbeck while helping to guide students on their path to college and growing the school’s acclaimed Puente academic support program. Davies has been named the Whittier Union High School District’s 2017-18 Teacher of the Year.

  • Frontier High Student Earns Recognition for Academic Turnaround, Community Work

    When Janice Palapa enrolled at Frontier High School as a junior in August 2016, she was far behind in her school credits, in low spirits and planned to stay only for as long as it took her to get back on track to graduate. Since then, Palapa has marched in the 2017 Rose Bowl Parade as a Gold Award Girl Scout and joined the school’s Associated Student Body while earning a full school year of credits in just one semester. Instead of leaving Frontier, Palapa will proudly walk as an FHS class of 2018 graduate.

She is now poised to share the stage with professional vocalists in one of the most elite women’s choruses in the country. Ridge was one of three high school vocalists recently selected to participate in the Choral Scholar Program for Vox Femina, a nationally acclaimed professional women’s choir based in Los Angeles.
