Calsada-Medina retires from Calipatria school district

Virginia Calsada-Medina 

CALIPATRIA — After a 33-year career that was spent entirely with the Calipatria Unified School District, Virginia Calsada-Medina retired recently as principal of Bill E. Young Jr. Middle School.

Her career-long tenure with CUSD was not a foregone conclusion at the time she had returned to teach within the same district she attended as a student. But it was a welcome development.
