DR. GEORGE BLEK by Sherrie Basch Stelik (’72)
George taught English from 1960 to 1966. He also coached "C" football and Varsity golf. When he left MHS he became an administrator, first as Vice Principal in Mission Viejo, Corona, and Lake Elsinore, then as Principal in Camarillo, and El Centro, and finally Superintendent of Schools in El Centro, and in Bakersfield where he currently resides. In 1973, he lured Mr. Woodson away from MHS. In 1975, he received his Doctorate in both Elementary and Secondary Administration. Although technically he retired in 1998, Dr. Blek continues to keep busy doing interim administrative assignments. He and his wife of fifty years, Jane, have three children. Craig is a college Economics professor, married to a high school counselor. Scott is an attorney married to a Doctor of Psychiatry, and Alicia is a first grade teacher, married to a minor league baseball manager. In his spare time Dr. B. plays golf, reads, travels, and, most recently, thanks to Scott, has been enjoying his seven-month-old twin grandsons. The good Doctor attended the Mane Event in July, 2008.
