Downey Unified School District Awarded Golden Bell Award
Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard (CA-34) joined members of the CHARACTER COUNTS! Citywide Coalition in Downey to honor the Downey Unified School District on its receipt of the CA School Boards' Association's Golden Bell Award. The city also unveiled its newest street in Downey: Caring Way, which now joins Responsibility Row.
The Citywide Coalition involves all aspects of the Downey community, including the school district, city, Aspire, YMCA, youth sports leagues, Police, Fire, churches, and service organizations -- all working together to teach the city's youth that character really does matter.
