Los Gatos, November 16, 2022: The Los Gatos-Saratoga Union High School District (LGSUHSD) held a reception yesterday, November 15, 2022, at Saratoga High School to honor outgoing Board of Trustee Members Cynthia Chang, David Guidry, and Peter Hertan prior to their final Board of Trustees meeting. Collectively, these Trustees have served the LGSUHSD community for over 30 years. 

Trustee Cynthia Chang joined the LGSUHSD Board in 1998 after serving on the Saratoga Union School District Board from 1994-1998. She is active in the community, having served as the Boy Scouts of America Troop 508 Committee Chair for six years, as the Co-Chair of Saratoga’s Memorial Day Observance event, and was recognized as Woman of the Year for the California Assembly’s 24th District in March 2010 for her decades of service to the community. Retiring as an LGSUHSD Trustee, Cynthia was honored on November 2, 2022, by the City of Saratoga Mayor Tina Walia and Councilmembers with a commendation for her service to the community.

Trustee David Guidry was elected to the LGSUHSD Board in 2018. Before his tenure, Trustee Guidry served on the Saratoga Education Foundation and the Saratoga High School Foundation, serving as President during his time in both organizations. Trustee Guidry still serves as the President of the Friends of the Saratoga Libraries Board.

Retiring Trustee Peter L. Hertan was also elected to the LGSUHSD Board in 2018. Trustee Hertan has been extensively involved in local education for a number of years, serving as an assistant coach for a girl’s softball team, a member of the Los Gatos elementary schools’ Dad’s Club, and as President of the Los Gatos Education Foundation. Trustee Hertan also served on Santa Clara County’s Civil Grand Jury for two years, and was a member of the VTA Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission and the Los Gatos Transportation and Parking Commission.

“As a new Superintendent to this District, it has been an honor to work with these dedicated Trustees who have been such an instrumental part in shaping this district,” said Bill W. Sanderson, Superintendent of the Los Gatos-Saratoga Union High School District. “I appreciate and value the impact they have left and look forward to beginning the next chapter with both our new and experienced Trustees.”

Three new Board Members will be sworn in and join current Trustees Theresa Bond and Katherine Tseng at the December 13, 2022, Board of Trustee Meeting at Los Gatos High School.
