Woman of the Year

March 12, 2021

Yesterday was a special day to honor a special lady. Our own Head of School, Mrs. Liz Caddow, was selected by Assemblywoman Suzette Valladares (R-Santa Clarita) to receive the honor of the California Legislature's 2021 Woman of the Year for the 38th Assembly District.

As a member of the State Assembly’s Legislative Women’s Caucus, Valladares is afforded the opportunity to choose one woman residing in the district who has significantly contributed to their community.

“Liz stands out as an educator who has enriched the lives of countless children in the Santa Clarita area with her unwavering dedication to education,” Valladares said. “I couldn’t be more proud to present to her this year’s Woman of the Year Award.”

A small group of Trinity board members, students, parents, faculty and staff gathered to honor and celebrate Mrs. Caddow, along with Ms. Valladares and other community leaders. The bipartisan event is usually held on the Assembly and Senate floor but was held virtually this year in a small socially-distanced ceremony.

Also at the ceremony, The California Legislative Women's Caucus had scholarship money to award and asked Mrs. Caddow to help decide who was deserving of this gift. Caddow and Valladares presented the award to Family Promise of Santa Clarita.

The opportunity to honor Liz was extended to other government offices, and they were happy to take part. Liz was presented with certificates from:

U.S. Representative Mike Garcia's office
Senator Scott Wilk's office
L.A. County Supervisor Kathryn Barger's office
City of Santa Clarita

Stephanie English, Senior Field Deputy for Kathryn Barger's office, shared a personal memory she had from a women's retreat many years ago when Liz spoke about "putting her money where her faith was," which resonated powerfully as there was a cost to Liz putting her faith first. English spoke about her many conversations with Liz over the past year and the clarity she has about Liz's advocacy for education and dedication to children.
