RUHS Alumni Association

RUHS’s Centennial Celebration!

Redondo Union High School Turned 100 Years Old In 2005

Almost two years after the school’s 95th Anniversary in 1995, the Association became acutely aware of the upcoming 100th anniversary and vegan wondering what to do about it. Working with school and district officials, the Alumni Association formed a committee to sift through and solidify all the ideas coming forth. This committee, made up of members of the Alumni Association, the school’s ASB members, past and present school teachers and administrators, and enthusiastic community leaders and by working aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

tirelessly long and hard hours, was able to come up with a week-long celebration schedule befitting the Redondo Union High School milestone.

Reproduced here on this and succeeding pages are the Schedule of Events, Event Locations, a list of the 100 Most Distinguished Grads, a gallery of photos and newspaper article reprints from the Celebration time period. They show just how wonderful this event was and how wonderful is the school!

The 43 members of the Committee were made up of RUHS administrators, RUHS alumni, people from the community and from the RBUSD School Board. Together they formed groups to plan events, carry out committee business, but also to choose a select Withaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

few alumni from a long list of worthy graduates. These became the 100 Distinguished Graduates. The list of Honorable Mention Graduates represents just how large the list of qualified candidates was, they just had to be recognized in some way. The members were:
