Anaheim Union HSD Trustee Anna Piercy Dies

Anaheim Union High School District Trustee and former Cypress Mayor Anna L. Piercy has died at the age of 80. She passed away last week after a battle with cancer. 

“She was a staunch advocate for constituents, students, parents, teachers, and voters,” Superintendent Mike Matsuda told Voice of OC

“When she believed in something she let us know, She was never afraid,” added School Board President Annemarie Randle-Trejo. “She listened to each and every one of us up here on this dais and to everyone out there.” 

Piercy was first elected to the school board in 2006. She taught in the district for 37 years and served on the Cypress City Council from 1996 to 2004. 

The vacancy created by Piercy’s passing can be filled by appointment or through a special election. If the board chooses to appoint a replacement, that person would have to run for election in November.
