18th annual alumni dinner 4

If you didn’t attend the 18th annual all-alumni dinner on May 6, you missed a lot of fun.  The event was sold out two days before and there were disappointed people at the last minute who could not attend.  The contest for the most classmates attending a mini-reunion was won by class of 1959 and a lot of thanks goes out to Jack Globenfelt who organized his class and coming from New York to attend.  Each 1959 attendee walked away with a nice goodie bag for the evening.

The FHS Associated Student Body and Leadership ran the 50/50 raffle and collected $443.  The lucky winner, besides the ASBL, was Sam Holmes, class of 1979 who walked away with $221.50.

Gary Lanfranco, class of 1964 catered a fantastic dinner of flat iron steak, scalloped potatoes, vegetables and salad which was served by Fresno High cheer squad and Senate members.

The silent dessert auction was fabulous with over 30 delicious items to bid on. Winners of the dessert shared their goodies around their tables and eventually took home lots of calories and carbohydrates in the leftover desserts.

In attendance was Dennis Elia, class of 1959 and his mother Mary, class of 1936 who just turned 96 and had a rousing happy birthday sung to her.

The classes of 1979, 1980 and 1981 were having such a great time, they closed the place down.

18th annual alumni dinner 3

A wonderful evening with the hint of threatening rain did not keep the group from having a wonderful time. Campus tours were led by JROTC and cheer squad, there were so many alumni who had not seen the current renovation of the school and were much surprised by how well the beloved Royce Hall is doing. It will be going through a million dollar sound renovation soon.

Many thanks to so many student groups who helped set up the event on the street and helped to clear the street when it was over. 
Join us next year, it’s the first Saturday in May each year. More photos will be posted at FresnoHighAlumni.com soon.

While coaching elite high school cross country and track and field programs at Buchanan in addition to directing labor-intensive Central Section and CIF State track meets at Veterans Memorial Stadium, Brian Weaver is locked into an exhausting, year-round commitment.

Two years ago, he surely could have been excused from overlooking Evert Silva, particularly in the distance runner’s developmental stage at a Fresno High Division III program that had operated in virtual anonymity since Michael Kasahun won the CIF State Division I cross country title in 1996.

Yet Silva, all 5-feet-9 and 120 pounds of him, caught Weaver’s eye.

FRESNO. Calif. (KFSN) -- Fresno High has as storied an athletic history as any school in the valley or state and came up with a way to forever honor their Warriors through the Wall of Champions.

"We have all of these athletes that were part of the school of champions and so what if we did a video of the accomplishments of those athletes," said former Fresno High principal Bob Reyes.

With support from the Fresno High Alumni Association, the idea came to life in the form of an interactive video board that tells the story of some of Fresno High's finest athletes and teams.

"Well just off the top of my head I think everybody on this wall has achieved quite a bit. If you look back at the history of baseball, Frank Chance was the last manager to take the Cubs and win a World Series, that was over 100 years ago," said Dave Brase of the Fresno High Alumni Association.

That is just one of the nearly 100 stories being told on a wall that continues to grow each year and inspire Fresno's current athletes.

"It's actually really cool to make Fresno High and to be a part of it and leave a memory here for the people that are in the future," said Fresno High wrestler Eli Sepeda.

It's connecting the past with the present and creating a rich high school experience in competition and in the classroom.

"What kids have to me about being here at Fresno High is the chance to interact with all the diversity on campus. So you have all those things going for you that makes this kind of a reflection of the wider community, it represents Fresno," said Reyes.

Fresno High School’s Jacqueline Ruiz has been named teacher of the year by the Fresno County Office of Education.

Ruiz, who teaches chemistry and International Baccalaureate environmental courses, has been a teacher for five years. She is also the pep and cheer director at the school, leading Fresno High’s squad to qualify for the United Spirit Association National Cheer Competition for the first time ever this year.

Ruiz was also named among the top five employees by Fresno Unified at its annual Excellence in Education banquet in February. Then, she was recognized as the district’s best high school employee.

“I want students to construct their own knowledge rather than have me lecture to them,” Ruiz said in a statement. “When students take responsibility for their own learning, they figure out what works best for them, do better staying in their optimal learning modality and gain not just knowledge to pass an exam, but true understanding.”
