Daniel C. Vallez Family Education Center 7125 Mariposa St. Denver, CO 80221
The ribbon cutting for the The Daniel C. Vallez Family Education Center, was held in June of 2023 with Daniel's two children in attendance.
The Daniel C. Vallez Family Education Center will meet the needs of students and their families with services ranging from language support to general health care. Vallez, who worked as both an assistant principal and principal in the district, was also passionate about family services and ran the “VOICES” program for the district before retiring in 2010.
He died the following year but is fondly recalled by many in the district. Superintendent Dr. Pamela Swanson called him, “a dear friend” and a “community builder”.
