Dr. Julian Nava was a trailblazer. That's why when the founders of our school were deciding on a namesake, there was only one individual that came to mind! Julian Nava refused to let his environment dictate his future. Who knew that one day, the young man from nearby Boyle Heights would grow to be one of the 1st Mexican Americans to receive a doctorate from the prestigious Harvard University? Dr. Nava believed that through education, anything is possible.
Our hearts go out to the Nava family. May his legacy continue to inspire and live on in our youth.
On behalf of our school site, we thank you for your work. We love you and will miss you.
Rest in Peace.
