Dr. Randolph retired from the Chula Vista Elementary School District in 1993 after 38 years of service as Classroom teacher, School Principal, Special Education District Coordinator and Student Welfare and Attendance Director. She spent the next 27 years actively leading volunteer efforts for the City of Chula Vista. In 1993, Dr. Randolph, stepped in to assist Police and Fire Department leaders who were looking for a way to provide compassionate and supportive assistance to families of trauma victims. Dr. Randolph organized and trained the first group of volunteers resulting in the Citizen’s Adversity Support Team (CAST) and she continued to lead the group for the next 20 years. Dr. Randolph was a passionate and active advocate for victims of domestic violence, children and the elderly, and a tireless volunteer. Dr. Randolph also gave her time and energy to a number of community groups including the South Bay Boys and Girls Club, the Salvation Army, the Domestic Violence Coalition, Chula Vista Human Services Council, the South Bay Lawyer Referral Group and several other organizations. She created and ran the Temporary Restraining Order Clinic at the South Bay Regional Courthouse and the Children’s Waiting Room.

Over the course of her decades of service, Dr. Randolph was honored with several awards but was most proud of the Governor’s Award for Assisting Victims of Crime and two Channel 10 Leadership awards for the CAST program and Children’s Courthouse Waiting room. Her compassion and dedication will be greatly missed by all of those she assisted. She is survived by her two nieces, countless friends, and the memory of a life well shared and lived.
