Dr. Les W. Frost and Elizabeth Zamora have been appointed to the Board of Trustees of the Westside Neighborhood School in Del Rey.

School officials note that Frost and Zamora will bring invaluable perspective and expertise to the Board of Trustees, particularly in the areas of educational innovation, long-range strategic planning and school endowments.
