Dublin Unified Trustee Killed in Tragic Accident at Fallon Middle School

The Dublin Unified School District is mourning the tragic passing of one of its trustees. Catherine Kuo, 48, was struck and killed by a vehicle while volunteering at a food distribution event at Fallon Middle School last week.

“There is a gaping hole in our hearts," DUSD Interim Superintendent Daniel Moirao wrote in a letter to the schools community. "Our schools, students, staff, and families are forever indebted to her."

In a statement, the school board called Kuo “a wonderful role model of leadership for our Asian American and Pacific Islander students. Her dedication to the mission of DUSD was obvious to all who knew her, and as a board, we are better for having served with her."

Kuo was first elected to the Area 3 seat in 2019. She had two children in the district and was a well-known community volunteer.

Police said drugs and alcohol do not appear to have been a factor and no arrests were made in connection with the accident. A GoFundMe for Kuo’s family can be found here
