Well-known educator and Benicia school board member Rosie Switzer has died, officials said Monday.
Switzer taught for more than 35 years as an elementary school teacher in the Benicia Unified School District, before serving on the school board for the past 10 years.
“Rosie cared deeply for students, families and staff. Her energy, integrity and compassion made a tremendous difference in our community,” said BUSD Superintendent Charles Young, in a statement from his office. “She will be deeply missed.”
