Sierra Vista, a soon-to-be K-8 campus on Bel Air Drive in Vacaville, should renamed after the late Ernest Kimme, the widely respected educator, civic leader and regular columnist in the Vacaville Reporter.
In the words of Ernie’s wife, Margi, at a recent school board meeting, “Ernest would be really touched by this, [and] he would also say, ‘This is too much,’ ” she added, a reference to her husband’s humility and selflessness, evinced over the years as an eighth-grade math teacher, city councilman, a member of countless city and county boards, and his ceaseless advocacy for public education in Vacaville.
“He loved Vacaville,” Stern said of her husband, who died in August at age 60. “Above that, he loved Vacaville Unified.”
That’s why we created a petition to Whit Whitman, President, Vacaville School Board, Shelly Dally, Vice-president, Vacaville School Board, and 5 others.
