Jovana Lara-Brooks, ABC 7 News Anchor and Holy Family High School Alumna Class of `84, cites her high school experience at Holy Family as pivotal in shaping the person she is today. "I have so many fond memories from my years at Holy Family High," said Lara, "...from working with Sister Suzanne Stopper on our Gael yearbook to our class retreats, and planning our junior year formal, every experience shaped the person I have become." In October 2018, Jovana was in the spotlight providing a special autobiographical piece for ABC News on growing up in Glendale, California including fond memories of Brand boulevard, Porto's Bakery and what it was like attending nearby Holy Family High School. Said Lara of her high school experience, "Holy Family taught me to be independent, disciplined, responsible, and most importantly, a good citizen.”
