Alhambra educator and former San Gabriel High principal Jack Mount dies

"Jack Mount, an Alhambra native and longtime educator in the Alhambra Unified School District, has died after a three-year battle with cancer," the Pasadena Star-News is reporting. "He was 75."

Mount was a 1953 graduate of Alhambra High, according to the article, and was a star athlete in basketball and baseball achieving All-Pacific League.

Graduating from USC, Mount joined the faculty at Alhambra High School in 1960, as an English teacher and basketball coach. He spent 12 years at his alma mater, the last four as assistant principal.

He moved to San Gabriel High in 1973, and spent four years as the SGHS assistant principal before being promoted to principal in 1977. He retired in 1996. In 1985, he was named the district's Administrator of the Year.

  1. As an awe-struck teenager I was giddy he was a sub for us one day in 10th. grade English at AHS. He was too cute to be a teacher! I later worked with Jack as President of the Alhambra Teachers’ Association. He was principal at San Gabriel HS and he always helped me understand his sometimes radical faculty. He was a kind man.
