Montgomery Named 'Woman of the Year for Monrovia'

Mrs. Joanne Montgomery, president of the Citrus Community College District Board of Trustees, was recently honored by Assembly Member Roger Hernandez as Woman of the Year for Monrovia at a special awards ceremony on Saturday, March 28.

Montgomery was chosen as one of this year’s honorees because of her ongoing service, leadership, advocacy, and commitment to the city in which she lives. For 32 years, she served the Monrovia Unified School District as an elementary school teacher, working with the district’s gifted and talented education program.  She was also a master teacher for several universities and served on numerous school committees.  Her many honors include a Teacher of the Year award.

In 1998, Mrs. Montgomery was appointed to the Citrus Community College District Board of Trustees to fill a vacancy.  She was later elected to the board in 1999, 2003, 2007, and 2011. She is also a member of the Monrovia Chamber of Commerce Business Education and Community Outreach Network (BEACON), the Duarte Chamber of Commerce Education Committee, and represents the Board of Trustees on the Citrus College Foundation Board.
