Suzan Solomon, a resident of Santa Clarita and member of the Newhall School Board, is Vice President for Education of the California State PTA as of July 1.

SACRAMENTO - Suzan Solomon, a resident of Santa Clarita and member of the Newhall School District governing board, will become Vice President for Education of the California State PTA on July 1. The association has nearly 1 million volunteer members throughout the state and is headquartered in Sacramento.

Solomon was elected to the two-year term of office at the association's 110th annual convention in San Jose this spring. She has served as a Legislative Advocate for Education for the California State PTA Legislative and education Chair for the Thirty-Fourth District PTA, and Vice President of Membership for the Santa Clarita Valley Council PTA.

Solomon began her activity in PTA in 1991 when her daughter entered kindergarten at Old Orchard Elementary School. Her first positions were as chair for both Red Ribbon Week and Dinner Theater. Over the last 18 years, she has served as unit, council, and district president, as well as holding various offices and chairmanships.

Her passion for children and public education as well as her experiences at the grass-roots levels of PTA propelled her to run and be elected to the Newhall School District Governing Board in 1999. She is now serving her third term as a school board member.

"Serving both the PTA and as a school board member has been a great marriage of grass-roots and policy-making activities on behalf of all children and youth, and public education," Solomon said.

Solomon was born and raised in Los Angeles. She holds both a bachelor's and master's degree in theater arts. Today, she lives in Santa Clarita with her husband, Eskel Solomon. Their children, Samantha, 21, and Spencer, 19, both attend college out of state.

The California State PTA has nearly 1 million members throughout the state working on behalf of public schools, children and families, with the motto, "Every child, one voice." The PTA is the nation's oldest, largest and highest profile volunteer organization working to improve the education, health and welfare of all children and youth.

The PTA also advocates at national, state and local levels for education and family issues. The PTA is nonprofit, nonsectarian and noncommercial.
