Sylmar Magnet Recognition

Posted on 05/27/16

Sylmar Neighborhood Council

For every one of us that succeeds, it's because there was somebody there to show us the way. For many Sylmar youth that light of encouragement came through the dedicated teachers and staff of Sylmar High School's Math & Science Magnet Program. Coordinator Debbie Steinert has been at the helm since 1994, and has been the driving force behind the Magnet's success. Ms. Steinert and teachers Barbara Lindsay, Bruce Towar, Robert Cohen, and Soheil Mashhoud were on hand to accept recognition from LAUSD Board Member Monica Ratliff and from the office of State Assemblywoman Patty Lopez. Cheering them on were local Superintendent Byron Maltez, Administrator of Instruction Jack Bagwell, Principal James Lee (Sylmar High), Principal Maria Herrera (Sylmar Biotech Academy), and Principal Tina Gandera (Dyer Elementary). In attendance were Magnet alumni, current students, and proud parents.
