A SUCCESSFUL 125TH CELEBRATION

In spite of September 16, 2014 being a very warm day for an outdoor noon event, the unveiling of the Fresno High Alumni Association’s bronze plaque went off without fail. About 2,300 students, a number of dignitaries and school administration were there to lend a hand in celebrating this very special recognition. Student Ofa Kuma sang the National Anthem after the posting of colors by JROTC.

Kopi Sotiropulos MC’d the event and introduced Principal Dr. John Forbes who opened up the ceremony by welcoming the students who stood in Warrior Park for the event. Supervisor of the Fresno Unified School District Michael Hanson spoke about the importance the school was to the city and how past alumni have contributed to FHS and the city of Fresno. Kopi introduced Mayor Ashley Swearengin who gave a city proclamation to Board of Education member, Carol Mills. Assemblyman Henry T. Perea gave the state proclamation to Board of Education member, Valarie Davis. Happy birthday ended the program along with the Alma Mater. Kopi kept the students engaged with “Go Warriors” shout-outs during the program.

SEPTEMBER 16, 1889 TO SEPTEMBER 16, 2014

One hundred and twenty five years ago, Fresno High School welcomed its first students into class. The student body had only 50 students and held classes on the second story of the K Street School which later became Emerson Elementary. The grades included ninth, junior and middle and those who passed the middle classes become the first seniors in the school and graduated in 1890.

Eventually, after many moves, including to a combination bathhouse and store building, it became apparent that a permanent site was needed for the school. The first permanent building was on O Street between Stanislaus and Tuolumne Streets and opened with 400 students in 1896. By 1915, this campus again was declared overcrowded and by 1922, three classical buildings were erected on the present Echo Avenue campus. Those buildings, Josiah Royce Hall, Joseph LaConte Hall and Alice Freedman Palmer Hall were the first buildings on the site, eventually a larger campus evolved.

15th Annual All-Alumni Dinner: May 3, 2014

What started out as a very warm day ended up a beautiful evening for dinner on the street in front of Fresno High. There were nearly 300 people attending this very special annual dinner as it was a celebration of 125 years for Fresno High and with all construction and barricades out of the way, the "new" Warrior Park along with Royce Hall were visible to all. What a wonderful view from the street! To see Royce Hall lit up in its glory made for wonderful photo ops. 

Two new 27,000 sq ft buildings of steel structure with metal stud walls 
and 10 new classrooms on the upper floors

Fresno High School has a very active alumni association which completely benefits the students.

The Fresno High Alumni Association will celebrate 15 years in 2014. During past years they have given over $100,000 to student’s needs that are not covered by district funds. From as little as a wall mounted TV support to the video center in Royce Hall, all grants have been approved by the principal for the needs of the students.

Fresno High has recently gone through a major construction project which removed the old portable classrooms and added 20 high tech classrooms on the second floors of two new buildings which set up the campus for a return to yesteryear. The classical design of these two buildings and returning the front of Royce Hall to an open area of trees and grass has been extremely welcomed by students, parents, alumni and the Fresno High neighborhood.

Because Fresno High School is celebrating 125 years in 2014, the Alumni Association is offering a special membership to parents of students. When you join the Fresno High Alumni Association, your senior student will have free membership for one year. Why is this important?

  • All membership monies are used to benefit the students.
  • Volunteers run the Association; there are very few administrative costs.
  • FHS past, present and future are promoted to the students.
  • Students get involved with annual fund raisers.
