Elena A. Brown Anthony 1948-2012

Elena A. Brown Anthony dedicated 37 years of  motivation, inspiration, and leadership to the progress and enhancement of student education in our community.

She began a teaching career at James A. Foshay Junior High School then transferred to Susan Miller Dorsey High School where she advanced from English teacher to dean of students and then assistant principal. Elena eventually moved on to Los Angeles High School where she was inevitably promoted to Principal. She always had a reputation for being a highly proficient administrator who advocated for all students to achieve education no matter their backgrounds. With a record of success working with troubled and underachieving students she continued to lay the groundwork where students, faculty and parents were able to buy into her system for success. This resulted in a major accomplishment that earned her, the students and the faculty outstanding LAUSD awards for most improved advancement of high school academic test scores. Elena was asked to assist in giving presentations and workshop discussions to other high school administrators on her formula for successfully implementing standards for achievment. Survived by a wealth of family, her memory, legacy and love will be cherished by all who knew her.
