'Parents of the Year' honored

DOWNEY - Four sets of parents were recently recognized as "Parents of the Year" in Downey for 2012.Winning parents were chosen by each of the local high schools. Parents Day was established in 1994 by President Clinton as a way for "recognizing, uplifting and supporting the role of parents in the rearing of children." This year's winning parents included Ruben and Annie Rojes (St. Mathias), Jack and Lisa Rodriguez (Calvary Chapel), Chris Lam and Valy Phann (Downey High) and Dave and Lynne Corapi (Warren). The families received proclamations from state and federal officials and were recognized at a City Council meeting in July.
