A Look Back: An Irvine street was named for a teacher at this school

Rosa Drew was one of the founding teachers at Vista Verde School (shown here) when it opened in 1974 in the Village of University Park. She taught at the school for 27 years, the last three after being diagnosed with ovarian cancer. The school later moved to Turtle Ridge and named its library in her honor, while the city named a street in her honor.
