Share Check Totaling More than $50,000
The principals of Audubon Middle School and Hillcrest Drive Elementary School in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) today were presented with checks valued at $52,000 by a representative for Comerica Bank. The money will be used to fund a Safe Passages and Officer Mentoring Program that ensures safe dismissal for students as they head home from the two schools.

Cortines, and Los Angeles School Police Department Chief Mike Bowman were present when Cynthia Jordan, senior vice president, Comerica Bank, presented the check to DeWayne Davis, principal of Audubon Middle School, and David Sanchez, principal of Hillcrest Drive Elementary School.
Each principal received a $26,000 check to implement a Safe Passages Program at their respective school for the 2010-2011 school year. Officers will patrol the school area to ensure a safe dismissal as students walk home or wait for transportation in areas with gang and violent crimes.
