SPHS Principal Janet Anderson Says Athletic Director Resigned

Mark Zalin Won't be Back for 2014-15 School Year

South Pasadena High Principal Janet Anderson said on Friday afternoon that Mark Zalin has resigned as the school’s athletic director.

Zalin, who has held the post for about two years, won’t return for the 2014-15 school year starting in August. Zalin replaced Ralph Punaro, who held the job for many years.

“In his two years in South Pasadena, Mr. Zalin was generous in sharing his expertise from his previous athletic experiences,” said Anderson. “He has a lot to offer, and I wish him all the best in his next endeavor.”

When asked about his departure in an email, Zalin replied: “I handed in a letter of resignation in February.”
