We are excited to announce the awarding of an EDGE coin for our campus security staff.
In recognition of their EDGE Leadership, El Modena High School recognizes our campus security team (Alex Lemus, Bill Fallon, Ed Covarubbius, Liddy Soto, and Sean Fryer) as true EDGE leaders. Through our pandemic, campus security helped to ensure our campus remaining open to facilitate needed resources for our students and families.

We thank them for all they do.
