Rebecca’s commitment to community service dates back to the civil rights movement; at the age of ten, she met and marched with the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. She went on to serve as a volunteer for Cesar Chavez and his Farm Workers’ movement in Delano during the summer of 1968. Throughout the years, she has worked on the campaigns of local and national Democratic candidates, and has been an active volunteer in various human and animal rights organizations. Rebecca has served as Youth Commissioner for the Tenth Council District (2004-2005) and as Vice President for the Neighborhood Council of Pico Park (2004-2006).
Last year, she received her certification in Human Resources from LMU. Rebecca’s entrepreneurial background includes ten years as a managing partner of Trumps Restaurant, co-founder of the gourmet restaurant service Why Cook, and launching a boutique, Rebecca Clark, in 1999. Most recently, Rebecca and her husband recently open Rascal, a local restaurant located in the Wilshire Corridor. Rascal now employs an HOLA alumnus, who dreams of one day opening his own restaurant.
Rebecca’s commitment to HOLA’s youth has remained steadfast during her nine years at HOLA. She is awed on a daily basis by her colleagues’ passion and dedication to the education and well being of our students and the community.
