  1. Congratulations Dr. Delahoussaye! You are a breath of fresh air for Los Angeles Southwest Community College. Your knowledge, experience, and interpersonal skills will be a great benefit to the college. The Los Angeles Community Colleges District Black Faculty and Staff Association wishes you the best.

  2. I have followed all of the praise for Mrs. Delahoussaye. Maybe people whole look back to while she was a counselor at Taft High School. She favored the students bussed in and turned her back on the students who took the RTD busses. She was a full on racist. She attacked me at every possible time until there was a parent conference when she found out my mom worked at another school with her husband. Things quickly turned. I was treated completely different.
