District Office, Johnson Gym & Board Room to be Named After Mendez Family

DISTRICT OFFICE, GYMNASIUM & BOARD ROOM
TO BE NAMED IN HONOR OF MENDEZ FAMILY
Westminster, CA – The Westminster School District Governing Board approved naming
two district facilities and a board room after the Mendez Family in recognition of the historic
Mendez v Westminster case that ended segregation in California schools in 1947. The District
Office will be named Westminster School District Office in Honor of La Familia Mendez, the
Johnson Middle School Gymnasium will be named Sylvia Mendez Gymnasium, and the District
Office Board Room will be named Mendez Board Room.
A Superintendent’s Citizens Advisory Committee comprised of 12 members from
throughout the community was tasked with identifying a district facility to name in honor of the
Mendez family. The Board of Education approved both of the recommendations brought forth by
the Committee and added one of their own at this evening’s School Board Meeting.
“We are so pleased to be honoring the Mendez Family and their courageous fight for
equality for all children. The Mendez v Westminster case not only ended segregation in schools
in California, but it also paved the way for the landmark Brown v Board of Education case that
ended segregations in schools nationwide,” commented Khanh Nguyen, President of the
Westminster School District Board of Education. “We owe a debt of gratitude to the Mendez
Family, they changed the course of history and we are proud to be memorializing their
contribution.”
