From Principal Monica Makiewicz
I am very sorry to let you know that Bill Sterling passed away August 12. For those who knew him, he was loved for his wit, his kindness, and his compassion for others. I can't even begin to say how much we will miss him and how much he is loved.
The family of Bill Sterling has requested that in lieu of sending flowers, people donate to the GoFundMe account set up in Bill's honor. "Bill was an avid lover of all things educational and was always a torchbearer for students. So in his memory we would like to split whatever money is raised on Gofundme between Baldwin Park High School and Glendale High School. These were the students he dedicated his life's work to."
Donate to the GoFundMe account in honor of Mr. Sterling
