    The School District could not have chosen a more honorable person to name this new complex after than Del Valdez.  It's great that he is finally recognized for his many years of service to the youth of this valley.  He has given tirelessly to help keep so many on the right track.  This valley owes him a huge debt of gratitude and I am very happy he has been recognized in this manner.
