Congratulations Jessica Guerrero!
Anaheim Union High School District
Area 1

Against all odds, Jessica, a first-time candidate & a lifelong resident of Anaheim, was successful in her campaign for Anaheim Union High School District, Area 1.  Jessica is was born and raised in the very district she is now representing. She understands first-hand, how AUHSD can work with parents, teachers & the community to achieve success for all students.

​Jessica attributes her educational & professional career to the programs she was involved early on in AUHSD. The support & guidance she received from her teachers & advisors at Sycamore Junior High & Anaheim High School helped Jessica realize her passion for work in education & mentoring students.

Welead OC is proud of Jessica and look forward to her success with the community!
