Westside Neighborhood School Appoints Two New Trustees:

Westside Neighborhood School has announced the appointments of Dr. Les W. Frost and Ms. Elizabeth Zamora to the WNS Board of Trustees.

Dr. Frost brings nearly 40 years of experience as an educator in public and private schools in Los Angeles, and as a leader within the community of California Association of Independent Schools. He has been a teacher and educator since 1970.

Dr. Frost was a middle school science teacher and later the Assistant Head of School at the Westlake School for Girls for twelve years, and in 1984, was appointed Head of School for St. Matthew’s Parish School in Pacific Palisades.

In 1994 Dr. Frost was honored by the Department of Education as a National Distinguished Principal, the only independent school head recognized that year.

In the past he has served as a trustee at St. Timothy’s Episcopal School in Compton, the Brentwood School, The Center for Early Education, as well as for the California Association of Independent Schools.

Zamora is a very active community leader with great expertise in institutional fundraising. She is currently the Executive Director of Development and Alumni Relations for the UCLA School of Nursing.

Prior to joining UCLA, Zamora was the statewide Director of Institutional Funding for the American Cancer Society California Division. She was on the

Founding Advisory Board for the Da Vinci Schools and was the Chair of the Advancement Committee for Bright Star Schools.

Zamora is currently the elected Vice-President of the Del Rey Neighborhood Council and is Chair of the Planning and Land Use Committee.

She grew up in Del Rey, is a graduate of Middlebury College, and went on to earn her Masters of Business Administration from Pepperdine University.
