Larry Powell featured in Esquire Magazine

FRESNO, Calif.

Fresno County's Superintendent of Schools, Larry Powell, is listed in the December issue of Esquire magazine as one of its six "Patriots of the Year."

The article points out that when California cut billions in education funding, Powell quit his job and the $230,000 salary that went with it, and then reapplied to do the same job for $31,000 a year.

By the time he retires, Powell's act will have added more than $800,000 to the coffers of Fresno County schools.
