In 2011, the Board of Education
voted to rename the JUSD Education Center, the Benita B. Roberts Education
Center. Mrs. Benita Roberts spent more than 30 years in education,
before retiring as the Superintendent of JUSD in 2001. She was a teacher,
principal, administrator and superintendent in Jurupa School District.
Under her leadership and guidance, the concept and building of a new Education
Center was accomplished and placed into operation in October 2000. On
November 19, 2012, a dedication ceremony was held and the District officially
dedicated the Education Center as the Benita B. Roberts Education Center.
