Triston will be the first Black man on the Culver City School Board!
Triston Ezidore is a student, the son of a Vietnam immigrant, and a staunch believer in a school district built for all students to thrive.
As a recent graduate from Culver City Unified School District, he has worked in a coalition to root our district in anti-racism and deliver bold systemic change to our students who have been left behind. Triston wholeheartedly believes that the people closest to the pain, should be closest to the power, and that diversity amongst legislative bodies is essential to enact systemic change for future generations to thrive.
Born in Minnesota, and raised between Las Vegas and Los Angeles due to housing insecurity and opportunity, he has attended several different schools, in several different districts, and in several different states. For the lion’s share of his life, he was raised by his single mom who, despite economic hurdles, risked it all to send his sister and him to the best schools possible. Through these experiences of navigating through a wealth of schools, he’s seen just how vital district leadership is.
As impact is the motivation behind everything that Triston does, this work is deeply personal to him. His deep roots in our school district lead him to know that together, we can build a Culver City Unified School District for everyone.
