BOARD REORGANIZATION The board of trustees will elect members to the positions of president, vice president and clerk. Currently, Armine Hacopian is president, Victor King is vice president and Vahe Peroomian is clerk. The board elects the officers to the positions and does not have a policy on rotation of officers. But traditionally, trustees have had an opportunity to serve as president in their terms. Trustees are put in an odd position this year because Hacopian has served as trustee president for eight months — which is less than the full term.

I was so proud of my city Thursday night! Not only was I witnessing the premiere performance of our new Glendale Renaissance Orchestra on the lawn of the Americana at Brand (“Concert Review: Chill, spirited,” May 1), but I was also treated to two renowned artists performing a lovely variety of music. It did my heart good to witness such professional artists almost in my backyard. I became a season subscriber because I want to support the city and the emergence of the arts in Glendale.

GLENDALE — It's never too early to start thinking about financial aid for college. At least that's the theory behind a new Web-based financial aid program for high school underclassmen. Historically, high school seniors begin filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid — which identifies how much financial aid a student will receive for college expenses — in January. But as of April 1, a new U.S. Department of Education program, called the FAFSA4caster, offers college-bound freshman, sophomores, juniors and their families insight into how much money they could be eligible for in federal aid, said Trey Ditto, spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Education.

GLENDALE — Local education officials this week said President Obama’s expansion of federal aid for college-bound students could make the process less intimidating for those seeking financial help. Provisions included in the so-called health-care reconciliation bill expand the range of Pell Grants and federal financial aid for lower-income students, a move that Glendale Community College officials and high school guidance counselors said would simplify what has been an arduous financial aid system for students.
