Be a part of the Pilot Project — Scan your yearbooks
We are looking to digitize all the yearbooks to preserve them, at least digitally. Ideally, they could be bound into a document, for all to pursue for nostalgic or research purposes. In conjunction with the Database Project, we use them to verify and locate the class members throughout the years. Some of us sometimes have difficulty remembering which exact year they graduated. Believe it, it happens! By verifying through class photos, we get a much more accurate picture of all our alumni – those we remember and those that are sometimes thought of but just not able to retain a clear recollection, name or picture.
The bottom line is – we attach yearbook photos with each alumnus, whether it be their senior, junior, sophomore, or freshman year depends on which was the last year a picture appeared. After all, not everyone did get their senior picture in there. Also, some transferred out before their senior year and we’ll use whichever year’s picture we can find to remember all as they were then. If we can’t find a picture, and it does happen though the name is recorded sometimes aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

The Database Project — A listing of all the school’s alumni
It all started with an idea hatched within the newly formed Alumni Association in 1995. From an idea to actual fruition, the Database Project has come to represent the second best aspect of the Association (scholarships represent the best aspect, of course!). It began with hours and hours of work going through each yearbook documenting each class year graduates.
Since then, people have told us to add names we missed and they remembered, received lists of attendees from reunions, and combed through updates sent in by fellow alumni. As it stands now, we receive a list of graduates from the RBUSD at the end of each school year to keep our listing as complete as possible.
To coincide with the scanning of all the yearbooks, it is the goal of the Database Project to correctly list all school alumni with the year they graduated or would have graduated. We match photographs with each person to give a more complete picture of Sea Hawks when attending RUHS. You can help by making sure we aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
