Superintendent Jane Shamieh and Board of Education President Shelley Dally presented Board member Nolan Sullivan with an award of appreciation for his years of service on the VUSD Board. Mr. Sullivan has a long history of serving students, not only as a Board member, but as the Chief Organizer for Measure A, the President of the Vacaville Public Education Foundation (VPEF) the Chair of Loop the Lagoon charity run and more. Nolan did not run for re-election so that he could spend more time with his young family, but we expect he will continue to have a strong and positive presence in our community. Thank you Nolan for all that you do.
