As we close out 2017, I am grateful for a memorable year and thankful for all of your support and friendship. Suzanna and I watched our baby Raffi grow up into a happy, healthy, and walking toddler. I have had the honor of serving on the Glendale Unified School District Board of Education and we have accomplished a great deal for our students and future leaders. I am excited for the work ahead. I wish you all a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2018. Happy New Year!
