Frani Gallegos

Frani had long been a fixture of PPO with her petite frame, huge smile, and great stories of her chihuahua, Penelope. Frani's career with the district began in 1998. She worked as a Clerk Typist III for many departments throughout the district including: Program Studies, Assessments, Testing, and Payroll, and was welcomed to PPO in 2007. Over the years, she fought and won many health issues, although, she was unable to win her latest battle. We hope she's finally at peace and without pain. Frani passed away on Sunday, March 27 at the age of 64.
