Our Story

In 2022, Derek Richardson purchased K. Anthony Elementary School. As a tribute to his mother, he renamed the school Dolores T. Richardson. From the time his now adult children first started attending K. Anthony to the present, Mr. Richardson has devoted many years and much effort to this community. Throughout the years, he’s built longstanding ties and cultivated meaningful relationships with educators, administrators, parents and children. Mr. Richardson continues to support hundreds of this community’s children through his foundation, Why Can’t We Make a Difference. His commitment to provide children with relevant education guides him on his mission of making a difference in as many lives as possible.

A Tribute to our Lineage

K. Anthony Elementary School was constructed in 1975 using a former nightclub at 8420 Crenshaw Boulevard. The son of Mr. and Mrs. Margaret and Brady Johnson, Keith Anthony, is the recipient of the school’s name. At first, students in grades one through four were supposed to attend the elementary school. When the school expanded, a fifth grade was added in an annex in 1978, and the sixth grade was added at a later year. Since that time, the preschool and elementary schools have supported the principle and objective that each year should demonstrate progressive yet accelerating growth.
