La Cañada High School Spartan Boosters Club President Jeremy Milbrodt and treasurer Randy Scoville on Tuesday presented La Cañada Unified School District officials with a $41,000 check in support of the creation of a wellness center for high school students.

After more than a year of design and planning, the Spartan Support Center is anticipated to open in the campus’ Information Resource Center (IRC) this August.

“I want to thank the board and all the people who really thought through the wellness center idea, came up with a great vision … and to the Booster families who donated $41,000 to get going on getting this great thing moving,” Milbrodt said. “It’s something the Boosters are proud to be involved with.”

LCUSD Supt. Wendy Sinnette said the new space, along with a college and career center being planned nearby, will become an epicenter of student activity that supports resiliency and thriving behaviors.


“With the college and career center, the Spartan Support Center and with the general IRC we’ll have a student hub that I think rivals any high-performing school district,” she said.

Sinnette said members of the La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation have also promised to raise funds for the wellness center during a paddle pledge event at their March 16 spring gala.
