New Staff Aboard at Long Beach CaLL

The nonprofit Long Beach CaLL (Career-Linked Learning) has announced that Michelle Thomassian will serve as the organization’s new administrator.  Thomassian, who most recently had served as the career access manager for Highline Public Schools just outside of Seattle, WA, will fill the Long Bach CaLL position as part of her new role as administrator, K-16 collaborations and external programs for the Long Beach Unified School District.

Long Beach CaLL is a partnership among LBUSD, Long Beach City College and Cal State Long Beach.  The goal of the program is to help young people develop personal and professional skills that contribute to their success in the workforce.

“I am thrilled to begin the 2019-20 school year together and join the esteemed Long Beach community,” Thomassian said.  “This work cannot be done alone, and I am both fortunate and eager to work alongside all of you to encourage students in Long Beach to be curious, find their purpose, and relentlessly pursue their college and career goals.”

In other staffing developments at Long Beach CaLL, Kehau Fujikami, who served the organization as a consultant in recent years, is now an official LBUSD employee and was named Long Beach CaLL’s business development and marketing specialist.
