The community liaison at Sunset High School, Nora Garcia, won a national award from Practical Parent Education, a Dallas-based company that provides training and curriculum to parent educators. She won the Linda Johnston Parent Educator fo the Year award, which "recognizes the work of a parent educator who goes the extra mile to provide outstanding services to the community."
Garcia has been a parent educator for 16 years, the last six of which were at Sunset. Since she started, parents have become more involved in their children’s educations, and they ask more questions and volunteer more often, says principal Anthony Tovar.
