Retiring East Los Angeles College physical education professor Marilyn Ladd, right, is presented a certificate of appreciation by former ELAC President Ernest Moreno during a party held in her honor recently at the Quiet Cannon in Montebello. Before family, friends, ELAC administrators, faculty, and staff, and East Los Angeles Women’s Center officials, Ladd was honored for her 35 years of service to the college as a teacher, coach, athletic director and supporter of women and family services in the community. An outstanding and versatile athlete, Ladd grew up in South Gate and attended ELAC after graduating from Pius X High School in Downey. She went on to graduate from Cal State Fullerton and returned to ELAC as a teacher in 1978. Ladd retires after nearly 40 years of teaching overall.

    Congrats Marilyn Ladd!! you were my basketball coach back in the late 70’s. THANK YOU for all you taught me. I still have a strong passion for basketball….I follow the Lakers faithfully. God bless you for all your years of dedication and service. It’s time to kick back and truly enjoy the beauty of life. May happiness, good health, laughter, and peace be with you. Liz Flores
