More about Michael


Over Twenty Years of Service

Michael and his wife, Lorrene, were drawn to New Haven by the quality of the schools when starting their family in 1990.  They settled in South Hayward with their first child attending Hillview Crest Elementary.  The growing family moved to Union City in 1998.  All three of their children, Jenna, Kyle and Nathan, attended and graduated from New Haven schools.  A big believer in giving back to the community from which they have gained so much, Michael has been actively volunteering for the schools for over 20 years.  (Photo:  Michael and his family)
