These are the Elna Flynn award winners from Pacifica School District. Each of these women volunteered countless hours before earning an award named after a grandmother who volunteered at Portola School, formerly part of the Pacifica School District, now part of San Bruno Park School District. The award winners will be honored at a dinner on Friday.

Andriana Antoniou

▸ Ortega Elementary School honors Andriana Antoniou as its 2023 recipient of the Elna Flynn Award. Antoniou has been an active volunteer at Ortega for five years as a PTO board member, a classroom parent for children Marianthi and Demetri, and much more. She can be seen around campus volunteering at pretty much every event: from selling popsicles on Wednesdays to door decorating during teacher appreciation week to carnival cakewalks.
