“I want my legacy to help train young people to be future leaders in our country.”

— Rosalyn Heyman

Rosalyn Heyman

My mother’s hard work as a single mother inspired me to pursue higher education despite financial obstacles. After earning a scholarship to UCLA, I worked as a high school principal and established the nation’s first computer lab in a public school. My legacy will challenge our city’s brightest high school students to aim even higher and pursue leadership opportunities.

The California Community Foundation partnered with StoryCorps to record the stories of our Centennial Legacy Society members. StoryCorps is a national nonprofit whose mission is to provide all people with the chance to record, preserve, and share the stories of our lives.

what matters is not how we differ, but what we share
