The Neighborhood Treasures are ...

Tuskegee Airman Leroy "Buster" Criss, who took flying lessons at Monrovia Airport and served during World War II in the "Redtails" - America's first black combat pilots.

Almera Romney, who during her 17 years at Huntington School (now gone) as a teacher and then principal fought pretty much everybody to change this under-resourced and unsafe segregated school that children of color were forced to attend, into a school where children received an excellent education.
