Temple City Unified School District administrators are proud to announce Staci Hazlett is this year’s Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) Golden Apple Award recipient.
Staci has been actively involved with the Temple City Schools and community since 2002.
Staci’s PTA “volunteer career” has been very rewarding throughout the years. She has served on PTA’s at all levels of the Temple City Schools – Longden Elementary School, Oak Avenue Intermediate School, Temple City High School and Temple City Council PTA. During this time she has served as President, Parliamentarian, 1st Vice President, 6th Grade Play Date Chairperson, Honorary Service Award Chairperson, Founders’ Day Chairperson, and on nominating committees for Temple City Council, Temple City High School PTSA, and Oak Avenue PTA. Staci has also helped work other PTA events such as Family Fun Nights, Red Ribbon Week, and bake sales. In addition, she has spent numerous hours involved with booster programs at TCHS for football, softball and wrestling and has served on the TCHS Grad Nite committee in 2005, 2006, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
Staci has been a very active parent in other organizations within Temple City. She was actively involved with Temple City Junior All American Football & Cheer where she served as Treasurer, Secretary, Snack Bar Coordinator, Cheer Coach and team Athletic Director and has served as “Team Mom” on many of her children’s sporting teams.
Most recently, she was actively involved with the TCUSD Superintendent to support a $128.8 million school facility bond that would help renovate all seven Temple City Schools. Staci served as the Chairperson for the successful “Yes on S for Temple City Schools” Committee. She proudly took this position because she understands the tremendous value TCUSD brings to this community and the importance of maintaining the facilities for many more generations of future Temple City children. She will continue her involvement with the school bond measure by participating on a steering committee that helps prioritize renovation projects. Staci’s next volunteer endeavor for the Temple City community will be acting as the Offline Data Verifier for the American Cancer Society Temple City Relay for Life.
Staci was honored at the ACSA Golden Apple Awards Breakfast on February 21.
