Remembering JoAnn Koobatian

by Jeb Bing

The Foothill High School campus is a sea of pink this week as students, faculty and parents pay tribute to the school's talented, fun-loving and much admired choir director JoAnn Koobatian, who died last Friday. And the tributes are continuing. The three choirs she taught will sing several of her favorite songs tonight at half-time during the football game between the Foothill Falcons and Granada High. The stadium, much like the rest of the campus, will be decorated in pink, which was her favorite color, with students wearing embroidered pink wrist bands hundreds of them have made this week. Next Saturday, Nov. 2, the 2013 Falcon Royale at the Pleasanton Hilton Hotel is being dedicated to her as parents hold their annual fundraiser, this year marking the 40th anniversary of the opening of Foothill High.
