Dr. David Gomez Reaches Out
to State Education Leader
Jack O'Connell

Jack O'Connell and Dr. David GomezDr. David Gomez, superintendent of the Santa Paula Union High School District, spent time discussing important education issues with Jack O'Connell, the state's head of Public Instruction, at Legislative Action Day in Sacramento on March 15.

The two joined more than 400 fellow administrators in urging state lawmakers against imposing further funding cuts to education in the 2010-2011 state budget. Meanwhile, 22,000 pink slips went out to teachers and another 1,000 were given to administrators last month.

Earlier this year, O'Connell visited Santa Paula High School
for a tour of the school. O'Connell met the teachers, Principal Paul Marietti and some students, and spent time during the day with Dr. Gomez, discussing the state budget crisis and its effect on education. Inviting O'Connell to visit the high school is one of the many ways Dr. Gomez has sought to reach out to state education leaders.

 Dr. Gomez, a 30-plus year educator, is running for the position of vice president for the Association of California School Administrators. He also is president-elect for the California Association of Latino Superintendents and Administrators.

  Amy Bentley Takes WC to Riverside County

Amy BentleyAmy Bentley wears many hats during her normal workday. She's a writer, editor and media consultant with Whisenhunt Communications, a regular contributor to several regional magazines and an education reporter.
Amy joined Whisenhunt Communications
in 2002, when her son Logan was two years old. She had been working as a full-time reporter for several years for the Ventura County Star, and the Thousand Oaks News Chronicle before that. As a new mom, Amy left the Star and joined Whisenhunt Communications, finding the relationship a perfect fit because it allows her to work out of her home. Logan was a two-pound, three-ounce preemie born at Community Memorial Hospital
who spent time in the CMH NICU. He's now nine, perfectly healthy and a bright third-grader.
Amy and her family moved a few years ago from Ventura to Temecula, a growing suburban community in Southwest Riverside County. She continues to help our clients, including some newer ones like the Temecula Valley Rose Society.
With most of our work being done electronically, through e-mail and by phone to maximize cost efficiency, Amy's continued success
at Whisenhunt Communications
shows how our associates - and our clients - can be located anywhere in the world and still receive excellent marketing services from us in this global marketplace.
