Foundation President receives PTA Council Honorary Service Award
Alan Cyron, MVLA Foundation’s President, was honored at the LAMV PTA Council Annual Luncheon on May 14th for his service to local youth through his volunteer activities on the MVLA High School Foundation board, MVLA High School District’s 2010 Measure A Bond Oversight Committee Member and Chair, Los Altos Educational Foundation (LAEF) board member and CFO, Citizens Advisory Committee for Finance (CACF) and Committee Chair for Boy Scout Troop 33 in Los Altos.
Marilyn Stanley, who presented the Honorary Service Awards, said “Perhaps one of Alan’s biggest impacts on the community is in raising funds for the local schools. Both LAEF and MVLA education foundations reached record fundraising goals during Alan’s tenure, which is no coincidence. In each of these volunteer community positions, Alan brings leadership, compassion, wisdom and a sense of humor. He also brings the ability to raise or address tough issues when necessary, and to inspire those around him with his insight and knowledge.”
MVLA Superintendent Jeff Harding added “Alan is a steadfast advocate for our students. His strong leadership skills bring people together to work toward a common goal. We need more leaders like Alan Cyron in our schools!”

What People Say About the Foundation…
“As a result of the foundation’s investment in the College and Career Centers, more of our students are gaining admission into their first choice colleges.”
– Dr. Jeff Harding, MVLA Superintendent
“The Foundation has allowed our high schools to maintain the best possible learning environment for all of our students… We would not be the schools that we are today without the support of the MVLA Foundation.”
– Wynne Satterwhite, LAHS Principal
“On Naviance I could see what GPAs and test scores it took to get into to each college, and I created a list of schools realistic for me.”
– MVLA High School Foundation Student
“Smaller classe sizes enable teachers to spend more time with each student and better cater to multiple learning styles. We can build personal rapport and help our 9th grade students as they mature and adapt to the demands of high school.”

“The Tutorial Center has really been my daughter’s lifeline in honors and AP chem. Thanks!”
