About the Dr. Joan Lucid Leadership & Service AwardTop of Page
The Dr. Joan Lucid Leadership and Service Award, honors Dr. Lucid, who retired after nearly four decades as an educator/administrator in the Saugus District. The award will be given to an individual or group that has made a significant contribution to the learning and development of students in the District.
Following 11 years as an elementary teacher for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, Dr. Lucid moved to the Saugus Union School District, where she spent the next 37 years progressing from being a classroom teacher to becoming an administrator. She first served as a teacher at Skyblue Mesa, Highlands and Honby Elementary Schools, then joined the district team as a Project Coordinator, assisting the district in multiple roles. Her leadership was rewarded with the principal’s position at Cedarcreek Elementary School in 1991. She was promoted in 1997 to Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction. Her final role began in 2011, when she was made Superintendent. She served in this role for seven years and saw many District accomplishments during that time.
Congratulations to the Santa Clarita Valley Education Foundation, recipient of the Firat Annual Joan Lucid Leadership and Service Award!
