Our colleague, Shirley Abrams, served as SARB and Homeless Education Program Coordinator in the Division of Student Support Services, here at the Los Angeles County Office of Education, for 20 years. Her advocacy for children and families was far reaching, and she was a well-respected expert on student attendance on the state and national level. Shirley served on the California State SARB. The Shirley Abrams Scholarship Award was established in her honor in 2012, which today is known as the Shirley Abrams Turn-Around Award, which recognizes students who have improved their attendance following their participation at the district SARB meeting.
