Glendora, Calif. - During its May 9 meeting, the Duarte City Council presented Citrus College Superintendent/President Dr. Geraldine M. Perri with a certificate of honor in recognition of her being named a "Woman of the Year" for the 25th Senate District.
Dr. Edward Ortell, Citrus College Board Trustee and Duarte representative, joined Dr. Perri, members of the Duarte City Council and the Duarte Unified School District (DUSD) to recognize the council's honor and appreciation of Dr. Perri as well as its support of Citrus College. "Dr. Perri epitomizes all that the Woman of the Year Award represents," said Dr. Ortell.
