Eddie Newman served on the PCF Board for several years where she always contributed her passion for education. Eddie is a retired educator and has dedicated her adult life to helping children receive the best possible education.
Eddie grew up in Pasadena and attended John Muir High School. Soon after college, Eddie returned to work at Muir for the next 13 years as a counselor, a role she loved. Eddie was then promoted to Assistant Principal and four years later to Principal, a position she would excel at for the next eight years. Eddie had an incredible, positive impact on so many kids who attended Muir during her long tenure. Many of those graduates still live in Pasadena and our community has benefited from all the amazing work she accomplished at Muir High School.
Eddie and Ray Newman have always believed in the importance of giving back to the community. They established the Ray and Eddie Newman Endowment for Education in 2017 with the Pasadena Community Foundation. They have confidence the Foundation will select educational organizations and programs that will have an impact on academic achievement and opportunities for Pasadena’s youth.
Ray and Eddie remain active in many community organizations and enjoy spending time with their grandchildren.
