Innovative Educator, Stake President Melvin Carlson Woodland Dead at 85

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA -- Innovative high school teacher and former LDS Stake President Melvin Carlson Woodland died of cancer on Friday, October 5th. Woodland was known for his 25-year-long program of placing his best students in part-time local jobs while they earned high school credit. The program is now called ROP (Regional Occupational Program). "Upon graduation, virtually all of them had full-time jobs waiting for them," said his son, Lee. Woodland was named Norte Del Rio "Teacher of the Year" in 1980, the year he retired. H was also active in the Boy Scouts and served as bishop of the El Camino Ward and as president of the American River Stake. He was 85.
