The Reporter: Dixon family trio works as school administrators

By Richard Bammer

Like one of President Kennedy’s calls to public service in the early 1960s – “To those whom much is given, much is expected” – the idea that life’s blessings bring responsibility resonates with Dixon’s Girimonte family.

“We always taught the kids, ‘You’re lucky and you ought to give back to the community,’ ” recalled Susan Girimonte, speaking of her late husband, Joe.

The family patriarch, an insurance agent who died in 2008, coached Little League, youth soccer, youth basketball, and was a member of Dixon Lions Club, a community service organization. Susan, a longtime educator in Dixon Unified schools, has been principal of Anderson Elementary since 2011.
