The Los Angeles Center of Excellence (COE) would like to take this opportunity to recognize and thank Assistant Director Juan Madrigal, who has served our team for over 10 years, for his dedication and expertise as he moves forward to the next stage of his career. 

Juan’s contributions to the COE elevated our work, and his commitment to analytic research shone through in the many efforts he supported and led during his time with us. 

Notable projects include collaborative reports with the Center for a Competitive Workforce, the Code Alignment Project in partnership with WestEd, and leadership guiding a project with the San Gabriel Valley Regional Occupational Program that identified educational and career pathways for K-12 and community college students. Juan also served as the interim director of the greater LA/OC COE. 

Juan will be missed dearly by our region and COE team throughout the state.

Best wishes to you and your family, Juan!
