The Covenant House of California marked its 25th anniversary May 2 at the Skirball Cultural Center. Musician Herbie Hancock joined outgoing executive director George Lazano after 22 years of service. Lazano’s career helped advance the non-profit’s ability to serve thousands of homeless, at-risk and trafficked youth annually in Los Angeles and Oakland. Hancock was recently named UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for the promotion of Intercultural Dialogue and has joined the University of California, Los Angeles faculty as a professor in the UCLA music department.
