It’s almost comical to think that Loren Kleinrock began his educational career in San Marino thirty-nine years ago as a “long-term substitute.” “Long-term” still fits but the “substitute” tag has been “long-gone” for quite some time.
Great Gatsby was the official theme of San Marino High School’s graduation proceedings last Friday evening, but ‘transition’ could have made for a suitable, if far less compelling substitute as the Class of 2014, long-time educator and Superintendent Loren Kleinrock and Principal Keith Derrick all bid ‘adieu’ to Titan Town in one fell swoop....Read More
