Posted 7/1/22

The Mt. Diablo Unified School District is pleased to announce that MDUSD Governing Board Member Linda Mayo has received the Mt. Diablo Adult Education 2022 "Friend of Adult Education" Award from the California Council for Adult Education's Contra Costa Chapter.


Trustee Mayo received the award virtually during the group's annual awards event on May 26th. Vittoria Abbate, MDUSD's Director of College & Career and Adult Education, presented the award to Trustee Mayo on behalf of the Mt. Diablo Adult Education program in person on June 29th at the district's Loma Vista Adult Education Center.


Ms. Abbate, who nominated Trustee Mayo for the award, said that while serving on the School Board since 1997, Trustee Mayo "has become one of the leading advocates of the role of K-12 Adult Education through her state-level work in the California School Boards Association (CSBA) and Parent Teachers' Association (PTA), ensuring that in state-level discussions related to K-12 school districts, the importance and value of K-12 Adult Education programs are included."


Mayo regularly attends adult education events including graduations, Abbate added. "This visible sign of support does much to encourage staff about the value of their work and models the importance of building a strong relationship between K-12 Adult Education and K-12 district programs, services, and staff."
