In honor of National Women’s History Month, BBON is celebrating our local history by featuring an article from the Daily Star Progress dated Friday, November 20, 1987.  The article highlights three women from Brea who were honored on the county and state level for their outstanding achievement. The honorees are Clarice Blamer, a former mayor, city council member and chairman of the Orange County Transportation Commission, Jean Sullivan, former Brea Olinda High School Principal, and Lisa Gaede, daughter of Susan and Rex Gaede, hired straight out of college to serve as a legislative assistant in Washington.
