MORENO VALLEY, CA- Dr. Judy D. White began her tenure as Superintendent for Moreno Valley Unified School District in February 2011 and immediately began connecting with the community, ultimately moving her family to the city. With over 35 years of experience in education she came in with a wealth of ideas and has embedded her heart and soul to the students and families of Moreno Valley.
She has procured several outside grants for literacy, volunteerism and closing the achievement gap. She serves on the Board for National Center for Urban School Transformation (NCUST), Moreno Valley Cultural Arts Commission, ACCESS to the Future, and United Way of the Inland Valleys and serves on the UCR Citizen’s Advisory Committee for Teacher Education.
She was recently awarded the 2013 Woman of the Year for Moreno Valley by the 61st District Assemblyman, José Medina. Some of her other involvements include Optimists, Relay for Life, Music Changing Lives and Fighting for the Family Ministries. She developed a formal Adopt-a-School program to engage the business and faith communities into the school district to support the students.
Dr. White embraces a united effort of “Excellence on Purpose” and has become known as an inspirational advocate for all students. She has made a name for herself in the community for reaching out, embracing change for the better and holding the district accountable for student success.
The Chamber would like to acknowledge all those who were nominated and thank them for their significant contribution to the growth and development of the City of Moreno Valley.

His Legacy Shall Live On Forever.
