Words cannot express the sadness and loss that the Kou family is going through now especially for her two kids. There is a GoFundMe that was set up to show our thanks for the sacrifice the family paid for Catherine service to the Dublin community.

Catherine was a sweet, kind, caring person that would put the interest of others (especially Dublin’s students) ahead of her own. She was a beacon of light in today’s dark and divisive politics and a role model (not just for Asian Americans but for all Americans) on how to serve the public. Catherine truly cares about the welfare of every students. I am amazed how she would reach out to countless families, know our kids by name and ask how our kids were coping with distance learning.

Catherine also fought tirelessly for years for a comprehensive second high school in order to deal with overcrowding. I really hope DUSD will recognize and honor Catherine’s public service by working with her family to see if they are open to naming a building or hall after her. Catherine loved Dublin and died serving Dublin.

Easter is about a week away and it is a reminder that life does not end with death. We do not really know why the Lord took Catherine so early. Whatever the reason, we know that as a Christian she is with the Lord now. I hope the spirit of Catherine continues to live in Dublin. If we all love one another and put others ahead of our own self-interests, this world would me be a more peaceful place. Dublin will surely miss her.
