Congratulations to our art teacher and visual arts coordinator Kathryn Forrest! Kathryn was selected as one of only three winners out of hundreds of applications as a 2008 HONDA HELPFUL AWARD winner.
Southern California Honda dealers honor three citizens who make a big difference with their helpful work in their community. Kathryn was honored for all her work with our students and our center. Few knew that Kathryn had to take the bus for 8 long months to get from her home in Seal Beach to the center, a 2-hour ride each way, often with a lot of art supplies as luggage. Thanks to her award, she will receive a brand new Honda Civic Hybrid in her favorite color. SoCal Honda also gifted Kathryn with a generous check to cover all ancillary cost. The new car will make her life a lot easier and we are really happy for her!
Kathryn was honored at the Award Ceremony at the Santa Monica Pier on January 22nd. Many family members and friends attended the event. And the sun kept shining despite the gloomy weather forecast!
Honda produced a beautiful video about Kathryn's work right here at our center.
