I once asked Arlene, "How do you do this everyday?" She said...you have to be dedicated to the children and believe in your cause. She then said you also need to have tough skin..lol. She was an incredible boss...We still talk about her in DCPS

This strong woman was indeed a role model. The citizens of Austin, Texas was able to hear her share her "Parent University" idea to connect school, home and family. We were so blessed by her presence. Her legacy lives in the heart of many. I bless her sons and grandchildren. She is a hero!
