Bassett High School Class of 2007 graduate William Herrera was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy at birth but that has not deterred him from pursuing a college education and becoming a graphic designer. Herrera has returned to Bassett High as a youth leader for community outreach provider THINK Together, giving back to the Bassett Unified community that supported him and inspiring a new generation of students.
Bassett Unified will celebrate the opening of Flanner Child Development Center with a special ribbon-cutting ceremony and classroom tours of the newly renovated facility.
Bassett High School dedicated its special education building on Nov. 2 to Linda Davis, an educator who spent over 30 years at Bassett Unified helping students with special needs transition into college, vocational school or employment. Davis passed away in 2007. The Davis Learning Center will support the District’s Adult Transition program, which is available to all students in the East San Gabriel Valley Special Education Local Plan Area.
