Salinas City Elementary celebrates Donna Alonzo Vaughan

The community of the Salinas City Elementary School District threw a big party last week to celebrate the grand opening of the multipurpose room at Los Padres Elementary School district.

Community members with the Salinas City district decided to name the room after Superintendent Donna Alonzo Vaughan to honor her unwavering and passionate dedication to children.

Everyone was there, including the ubiquitous green scissors of the Salinas Valley Chamber of Commerce. Donna's husband, William Vaughan, used them for the ceremonial ribbon cutting.
 Donna died in June and left a huge void in the district and in people's hearts. Now there's a place that will properly honor her memory for many years to come.

Wherever she is, she's giddy with happiness.

I miss you too, Donna.
