The Luther Burbank Board of Trustees is saddened to announce that beloved and respected Board Trustee Darlene Wallach passed away on Wednesday, July 12, 2017 after a courageous battle against cancer. Elected to the Board of Trustees in November 2014, Ms. Wallach demonstrated herself to be an independent and thoughtful elected official. She studiously reviewed board meeting materials, asked probing questions and strove to make decisions in the best interest of students and the voters, who elected her to office. Her passion for public education was a hallmark of her tenure on the Board of Trustees!
In her statement , Ms. Meghan Weisler, Board President, has captured for all stakeholders Darlene's service on the Board of Trustees:
"Anyone who knew Darlene knew that she had a big heart and was not afraid to fight for what she believed in. These were two of the many reasons that we were lucky to have Darlene serve on the Board of Education for the Luther Burbank School District. Darlene had a love and passion for educating students. When in the presence of students, Darlene perked up and soaked in whatever the students were sharing. She was an active listener and respected students in the same manner that she would have anyone else. Darlene's attitude as a life long learner brought passion, understanding, and grit to the Board. As an active Board Trustee, Darlene carefully read each board packet and was not afraid to question an item that she was unsure of or did not agree on. She respectfully held her ground and would get feisty when appropriate. Darlene took a stand and pushed to be sure that decisions were made to support students and achieve student success. She will be greatly missed!"
