At the January 8, 2013 Board meeting, Superintendent Polly Bove and the Board of Trustees presented Ed Walzer with a Friends of Education Award. This is the highest award given by the Board and it is only given to people who have made a significant impact in supporting the students of the Fremont Union High School District. Ed has been with the District for 45 years.
Present at the meeting were numerous colleagues, former students and friends. Ed began his career as a teacher at Cupertino High School, and also worked at Lynbrook and Homestead High Schools. He started the Ice Cream Shop Transition Program at Homestead High School in the 1990s and he has been a long time announcer at home football games. He was also the state CTA representative for 24 years. Bove said that, “Ed is someone who gives so much to this District and to the students of this District, and has left an incredible legacy.”
