After serving the Lake Elsinore Unified School District for more than 24 years, Jeanie Corral is about to retire, leaving behind her name and legacy.
“I’ve always considered public education such a gift,” Corral said. “I just thank God I was in a place where I could attempt to make a difference for the betterment of children's educational experience.”
Corral’s involvement with the school district dates to 1974, when she began playing for middle school and high school musicals.
She joined the Governing Board in 1988 as a school board member.
Corral said she plans to retire in mid-December and told Patch, “I’ve done it for so long, it’s hard to think about not going to all of the schools whenever I felt like it.”
A rededication of the Jeanie Corral Performing Arts Center at Temescal Canyon High School will be held at 5:30 p.m. Thursday.
“It’s an honor for me to be remembered, especially with performing arts,” said Corral.
