When people speak of diversity in law enforcement agencies, many often assume it refers only to ethnic and racial diversity. Although having a racially and ethnically diverse police force is an important component of this idea, it is too narrow of a definition. Diversity could also refer to gender, educational and military background, age and more. Achieving diversity in the police force has been a long-standing issue in Glendale. Although from time to time the topic becomes more en vogue, we often fail to address the merits of having a diverse police force.

Darleene Barrientos When Jessica Thepprasit watches movies about teenagers, she and her friends often wonder what high school the movie is based on. Jessica, a 17-year-old student at Glendale High School, is Thai, her best friend is from Nicaragua, and her closest male friends are both Filipino. The student government, where Jessica is the art representative, is a breadbasket of cultures -- senior class President Lia Oganesyan is Armenian and senior class Vice President Hera Yoon is Korean.

Last month on St. Patrick's Day, the dark gray skies threatened rain and the air was chilly. I parked my car on Honolulu Avenue in Montrose and hurried into the welcome warmth of the Merle Norman Studio. The storeowners Kris Kline and Kim Kelly were busy with customers. I browsed for a while in the sparkling clean, well-lighted shop. A beautifully dressed woman with impeccable grooming asked Kris what eye make-up colors would complement a red outfit. Kris suggested charcoal and black for evening, browns for daytime.

Darleene Barrientos Last year, when state education officials determined that several Glendale public schools failed to reach state targets for student achievement, Glendale Unified officials were sure the state was mistaken. Last week, the state released a report that only two schools were not meeting standards. Last year, the state said six public schools were underperforming for the Adequate Yearly Progress standard. Clark Magnet, Crescenta Valley, Glendale and Hoover High schools received passing grades.

Seda Petrossian’s hair salon of choice is in an unlikely location: Glendale High School. Petrossian has been going to the salon in the school’s cosmetology lab for several years, getting her hair cut and colored by high school students and recent graduates who are taking cosmetology classes at the school. She enjoys being a client of students who are learning a craft, and learning it well. “The students are very attentive,” she said. If the students have questions or problems as they work with clients, the teachers are there to help, she said.
