People: School board welcomes new members

The Las Lomitas Elementary School District's governing board welcomed two new members on Dec. 12, William Steinmetz and Diane Honda, and unanimously elected Richard Ginn as board president and Jay Siegel as clerk.

Mr. Steinmetz and Ms. Honda replaced Maria Doktorczyk and John Macdonald, who did not run for re-election.

The board also recognized teachers Janet Gregori, Susan Logie, Maria Marchi, Brenda Nixon and Jill Ohline, who have been certified by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards as deserving of advanced teaching credentials. The board on its website says that the certification is "designed to recognize effective and accomplished teachers."

The Las Lomitas district has two schools: Las Lomitas (K-3) and La Entrada (4-8).

Eagle Scout award

Jonathan Spencer Horn of Emerald Hills was honored at an Eagle Scout Court of Honor Sept. 15 at the Hillsdale United Methodist Church in San Mateo.

A member of Troop 27 in San Mateo since 2006, Jonathan earned 21 merit badges. His Eagle project was refurbishing the gardens at Stanbridge Academy in San Mateo.

A senior at Stanbridge Academy, Jon is now serving as a assistant scoutmaster. He hopes to parlay his interest in scouting and first aid into a profession as a firefighter, park ranger, or emergency medical technician.
