Darren Knowles is a true hidden hero. As Assistant Superintendent at Pomona Unified School District (PUSD), he led the District’s effort to connect students from K-12, adult education, a child development programs, and PUSD employees to coverage. To do that, PUSD partnered with the ALL IN Campaign to inform tens of thousands of students, families, parents, and employees about health coverage opportunities through Covered California and Medi-Cal. PUSD also partnered with the ALL IN Campaign to host an enrollment event, which resulted in the enrollment of 16 individuals in coverage. To this day, PUSD is continuing to connect individuals with certified enrollment counselors to enroll them into coverage.
