In late breaking news, Dana Tomlinson, who had served on the Board of Directors for the 
SBUSD Education Foundation for 18 years resigned last night. Dana, also served as President of the Foundation for many years and was a teacher in the South Bay Union School until retiring a couple of years ago. We want to "Thank" Dana for all the many years of dedicated service and hard work she put in on the Board of Directors and teaching students of the South Bay Union School District.  Dana will still continue her work with the San Diego Book Project.The San Diego Book Project in a 501(3)c that provides books for other non-profit organizations. Dana will also remain available to the board of the foundation for any questions they may have or help they need. We wish Dana all the best and wish her well in her other pursuits.
