For 36 years, Linda Evans has given her time, energy and creativity to make Crescenta Valley High School one of the best public schools in the country ("CV High principal to retire," April 20).
Crescenta Valley High School has been and continues to be the heart and center of our community. Over the years, we have celebrated and rejoiced in the accomplishments of our students and supported each other during times of sadness and loss. It is often said that the strength of a community lies in its schools, and this is certainly true of Crescenta Valley High.
Evans returned to her alma mater to teach English and in time became the chairwoman of the English Department. A few years later, she moved to an administrative role as dean of students and then advanced to assistant principal before assuming the responsibilities of co-principal.
