FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BURLINGAME – The La Opinion newspaper in Los Angeles has honored California Teachers Association Vice President David A. Sanchez by listing him as one of the state’s top 80 Latino “leaders of the future.”
In its profile of Sanchez, the newspaper wrote: “Being a teacher, being in the classroom and fighting for a good education, all of that, David Sanchez carries in his blood.” Sanchez shares the honor with Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Assembly Speaker Fabian Nuñez, Los Angeles County Federation of Labor Executive Secretary-Treasurer Maria Elena Durazo, and other California union, political, business, show business and sports figures.
“This is a huge honor, but it really speaks more about the influence of CTA and its 340,000 members,” said Sanchez, the son of teachers who is in his fourth year as CTA vice president. “Working together, our teachers and parents are making a vital difference every day in the education of our Latino children and all of our kids across the state.”
