Problem
The West Covina Unified School District recently announced that they are building an "Events Center", that will include an Auditorium, on the campus of Edgewood High School. Neither Edgewood or West Covina High School has ever had an actual performance auditorium before now. As a place for the performing of music and arts, and as a community event center, this should be dedicated to someone that spend their whole life positively impacting high school students and the community as a whole.

Solution
This Event Center, or at the minimum, the Auditorium, should be dedicated to, and named after, Richard A. Kinzler. Mr. Kinzler, or Mr. K, as he was known to all, taught vocal music at Edgewood High School for over 20 years until it merged with West Covina High School, in 1988, and then he taught there for another 15+ years. He created the Trojanaires, a showchoir that performed throughout the community and toured the western US. Upon moving to WCHS, he created the WescovAires that continued the tradition. 
Thousands, upon thousands, of high school students passed through the doors of the vocal music room and were positively impacted over the course of his 35+ years of teaching. These students and the community, as a whole, was changed for the better because of the dedication and passion of this man.
A fitting tribute would be to name this center for Richard A. Kinzler.

Personal story
I was a student of Mr. Kinzler's and, although I am creating this petition, I feel that any of those who dealt with him could do the same with no reservations. Leaders in the school today might not know of the rich musical legacy that is there because of Mr. K, but I feel we owe to him and to them to let them know by signing this petition.
