Vocal Supporter and Friend of School Health Education Scott Folsom Dies.
Health Education still exists in the LAUSD and one of the most vocal supporters for school health education was Scott Folsom
who was very active with the PTA both locally and statewide. He passed away August 4. Scott was a pain in the neck to many a school board members and District Administrators BUT he balanced the pain by being a major supporter of good things going on in the District too. He was one of the first to raise the iPad issue in the LAUSD and was always at meetings when plans to drop the Health Education requirement were being discussed to raise his personal objection and also objections for the PTA.
LAUSD Supt. Michelle King and Board President Zimmer, stated in the TIMES that “He was, in many ways, the conscience of this district, supporting what was best for the students, including arts programs, health services, and health education.”
CASHE will always be indebted to Scott for his strong support of school health education not only in the LAUSD but across the state of California as well.
Donations can be made to the L.A. Trust for Children’s Health where he served as a Board member via their website: thelatrust.org.com
