PYLUSD School Board will also honor our School District’s parent volunteers at 6:00 p.m. YLHS has
nominated Jim Hom, our parent volunteer for the past four years in the library. Jim started volunteering in our library the year we opened during registration and helping code our textbooks for distribution. He has continued to help students and staff over the past four years with classes using the computer lab, textbooks and distribution of library materials. A quote from Roseann; ”Not only is Jim the BEST volunteer I have ever had, but both his wife and daughter, Michelle, made volunteering in the library a family affair.” A BIG THANK YOU TO JIM HOM!!!
