Ronald E. Bell is a Native Son of Sacramento. Born and raised in the State Capital, Ronald, received his entire education through the Sacramento Unified School District. The most memorable educational experience for me was when I was a student at Sutter Jr. High and President Joh F. Kennedy was assassinated. I remember that as a turning point for me, educationally speaking. I went on to graduate from John F. Kennedy High School. My two hero's became Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. also assassinated and President Kennedy. I graduated from the University of California at Davis earning a Bachelor Degree in Sociology. I studied people interactions. I learn how to best navigate between human relationships. I was taught how to manage and supervise large and small groups of individuals. As I entered State service with this knowledge, I easily climb the employment ladder and retired as a Staff Services Supervisor. With my education and the State training I received I became a well qualified Manager of large groups of employees. I became the Supervisor of the largest Mailroom.  I retired from State service in 2015.
