Parkway Alumni – Judge Roman makes a visit

e-Connections Post Parkway

Superior Court of California Judge Jaime R. Roman was a student at Parkway Elementary in 1958,  just a couple years after the school opened. After reminiscing about his experience at Parkway, he sent a letter to Principal Doyal Martin along with a donation telling his story and asking about an infamous paddle that used to be in the principal’s office. Mr. Martin invited the judge to come and visit his old stomping grounds.

On March 8, Judge Roman visited Parkway Elementary visiting classrooms and reminiscing about his days at Parkway. It was a great day for the kids of Parkway to see one of their own come back and say hello. Unfortunately, there was no paddle in the principal’s office.
