Agnes Stevens

L.A. City Hall will pay tribute to late Malibu local Agnes Stevens for her passion and dedication to helping the homeless in our community and beyond. Founder of the nonprofit School on Wheels, Stevens’ commitment to providing an education to impoverished children touched the life of thousands.

In honor of her impact on homeless children, L.A. City Councilmembers Jose Huizar and Paul Kortez will pay her tribute at Los Angeles City Hall this Friday, June 26, at 9:45 a.m. The public is welcome to attend.

In addition to celebrating Stevens’ success, School on Wheels is partnering with California Science Center and The Guinness Book of World Records to set a new world record for the most people gathered together dressed like Albert Einstein, according to spokespeople from School on Wheels. 

The world record-breaking event is scheduled for Saturday at the California Science Center, located at 700 Exposition Park Drive in Los Angeles.

Although Stevens passed earlier this year due to a long-term illness, her legacy remains as her foundation continues to educate homeless kids every day. 

“Agnes was one of those very special human beings who inspired everyone around her. She had such courage and vision to see beyond all the roadblocks in life,” said Catherine Meek, Executive Director at the School on Wheels, in a statement released by the nonprofit.
