Dr. Rosalyn Heyman, a longtime administrator in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LA USD) and member of the GSEP Board of Visitors, is establishing an endowed chair in K-12 leadership. This endowment is through planned giving that will be established through her estate. “Roz has always had a strong passion for those that choose leadership of schools for a career,” said Dean Weber. “We are privileged to have her support.”
Heyman was honored by GSEP with an honorary Doctor of Laws in 2008. Her career in education was long and distinguished and included positions as a counselor, department chair, budget consultant, business education and English teacher, assistant principal, and principal. She retired from her position with LA USD as assistant superintendant of secondary education in 1990.
Heyman enthused, “I am delighted to help Pepperdine expand its programs to develop outstanding teachers and caring administrators who will make this world a better place!”
