Alice Petrossian, who held deputy superintendent positions for Glendale and Pasadena unified school districts, has been named to the Los Angeles County Commission for Women.
County Supervisor Mike Antonovich announced the appointment today.
Petrossian, a Glendale resident who retired as Chief Academic Officer for Pasadena Unified this year to become president of the Assn. of California School Administrators, has been a prominent figure in both cities through various organizations, including the Armenian Education Foundation.
The county Commission for Women works with the Board of Supervisors and community organizations "on key policy decisions affecting the lives and well-being of women," according to the announcement.
