The Shorecrest community mourns the loss of Janet Root. She was a Champion for our school and a legend in our community. Janet will be missed but her spirit will live on at Shorecrest forever. She has left a legacy of excellence and commitment that will inspire future generations of Chargers.
Mrs. Root’s innumerable volunteer efforts were commemorated with the institution of the Janet Root Volunteer of the Year Award, and more recently when she was named the first honorary alumna of Shorecrest during Commencement 2016.
“Janet made contributions to Shorecrest that were so varied and valuable they are hard to calculate. As a result, this institution has spent the last few decades doing its best to recognize and thank Janet Root and her family for the ceaseless effort to guide, encourage, and shape Shorecrest in a positive way. Her influence on this place will be felt for many generations.” ~ Charles Reynolds '81, President, Shorecrest Alumni Association
Dr. Root suggested that contributions may be made to the Shorecrest State of the Arts Fund in honor of Janet.
