Greg Krikorian Appointed to Chair Five Star Education Coalition

GLENDALE–Gregory S. Krikorian was appointed to serve as president of the Five Star Education Coalition–a coalition of Board Members and Superintendents from five school districts: Burbank–Glendale–La Canada–Pasadena–and South Pasadena–representing 75,000 students. The member districts share common boundaries and interests in promoting excellence in public education.

Krikorian is the immediate past president of the Glendale Unified School District Board of Education. He is serving his 6th year as a board member having been re-elected to a second term.

Greg is currently representing the Glendale board of education on the California Suburban School Districts (CALSSD)–an organization of school board members and superintendents–which speaks on behalf of suburban school districts. He also serves on the Glendale Educational Foundation–Los Angeles County Committee of School District Organizations and Los Angeles County School Trustees Association.

Krikorian received his Masters in Governance 2005 from CSBA and completed the Leadership Glendale Program 1995 sponsored by the Glendale Chamber of Commerce. Krikorian and his wife of 16 years–Christine–have five children–four of whom attend Glendale public schools. Greg is co-owner of Business Life and Senior Living magazines and has long been a strong advocate for maintaining the vitality of business in Glendale. He has also contributed many years of service in numerous community and service organizations including Kiwanis–Verdugo Hills Boy Scouts Board of Directors–Jewel City Little League President–AYSO Soccer coach–and much more.

"I’m truly honored to have the opportunity to serve our Arroyo-Verdugo region–which includes Burbank and Pasadena" stated Krikorian. "I can’t thank David Nos–former member of the Burbank Board of Education–enough for having the vision to create such an organization over 10 years ago to serve all of our students and share resources with our neighboring cities. And to follow in the footsteps of our past President Jinny Dalbeck–La Canada Board of Education–who served many terms as president is an honor because her service is an inspiration to me personally."

The community is invited to attend a Five Star Education Coalition forum on "Adequacy–Sufficiency–and Equity in Funding Public Education." This is the first of an informative three-part series on issues of educational importance. It will be held on Thursday–March 9–2006–from 4:00 to 6:00 PM–at the Edison Pacific Community Center–501 S. Pacific Avenue in Glendale.
