4 Area Educators Among 12 Honored Statewide
Four Southern California educators are among 12 recipients of the 1991 California Educator Awards, the state Department of Education announced Tuesday.
Local winners of the annual awards, which provide $25,000 apiece, went to two principals with the Los Angeles Unified School District. They are Yvonne Chan of Vaughn Street Elementary School in San Fernando and Daniel Lawson of Ambler Avenue Elementary School in Carson. Awards also went to two Orange County teachers, Margo Sorenson of Harbor Day School, a private campus in Corona del Mar, and Lois Cohn of McGaugh School, part of the Los Alamitos Unified School District.
Honorees are selected by a steering committee of educators, and funding is provided by the Milken Family Foundation of Los Angeles.
