“I’d like to thank Ms. Travanti for leading the Board for the past year,” said Board President Selene Lockerbie. “This year was not only full of the expected challenges of school board governance, but also the daunting challenge of navigating through a global pandemic. Ms. Travanti led with intelligence, grace, decorum, and strength.
As I take on the role of School Board President, I look forward to a year of progress for our District working with this proficient governance team, Superintendent, and the Monrovia community,” President Lockerbie said.
December 13th was Maritza Travanti's last day as the Monrovia Unified Board of Education President. Under her leadership, the district navigated through COVID-19 and brought our students back into the classroom safely. She will remain on the Board as a board member.
