December 18, 2014 | Sun Valley, CA | Assemblymember Patty Lopez visited with students, faculty and staff of East Valley Skills Center. She took photos with school leaders and Student Council reps who organized a Food Drive in which donations were given to the local community based organization MEND in Pacoima (http://mendpoverty.org). She also attended the annual faculty holiday reception. The Honorable Patty Lopez said the visit was like a homecoming, as she was herself once an Adult Ed student at North Valley Occupational Center.
