Santa Clarita will be losing two jewels in a few weeks.
Paul and Robin Strickland will be moving to Florida after many decades in Santa Clarita. We first met Paul and Robin a few years after we moved to Santa Clarita in 1990.
Our kids were all in Sulphur Springs Elementary school. All five (their three and our two) matriculated through the Santa Clarita Valley’s public school system.
Paul and Robin are two of the examples of what makes our valley so special. They have been involved in everything, from PTA and T-Ball coaching to Paul’s becoming Hart district board president and heading up the Santa Clarita Arts Commission.
Aside from raising her three wonderful children, Robin is a realtor, and assisted at KHTS when the housing market took a downturn.
Paul has been found playing FDR at the Canyon Theatre Guild and also performed in more serious roles, including “The Laramie Project.”
Paul’s membership on the William S. Hart Union HIgh School Governing Board, we have witnessed Paul’s passion in fighting for our kid’s education.
Robin is the type of person who will pull up her sleeves and do the tough volunteer work with just an “ask.” We have never heard her say, “No.”
Both Paul and Robin have been active in politics. Paul has been on seven of our eight KHTS Sacramento Road trips.
He has fought hard for the issues that are important for our valley and has been passionate about education and the arts.
Paul has also hosted our weekly matinee program on KHTS AM-1220 and rebroadcast on SCVTV, covering the arts in Santa Clarita.
Over the years, he has interviewed thousands of aspiring artists, singers and actors, allowing a platform for them to shine.
We know this planned move has been a challenge for them as they move closer to their first grandchild. Leaving their home, family, friends and community has not been an easy decision.
Our station will miss a tremendous double Strickland asset. We will feel a personal void and our valley will lose a tremendous couple when Paul and Robin depart.
Our tears are already welling up way before we have to say a final good-bye.
Here’s the original news story about Paul Strickland’s Resignation.
Here’s a joint news release from the city and the Hart district.
