Does a $300,000 Baldwin Park Director Job Require a High School Diploma?
Manuel Carrillo Jr.
According to the City Attorney, Robert Tafoya, the City didn't require Manuel Carrillo Jr. to produce a high school diploma or general education degree to become the director of Parks and Recreation. In short, with perks, Carrillo makes close to $300,000 a year, and for that, you don't even need to have graduated high school.
I strongly suspect that Carrillo never graduated high school, because people who generally graduate high school submit their diploma or have it verified for such jobs.
