The Roman Legacy
IT'S A NEW DAY AT LA HIGH!
The Harrison Trust is delighted to join with alumni to help preserve the history and integrity of Southern California's first and oldest public high school. We are committed to providing the type of support to LA High and its students that will help put your noble alma mater back on the map as one of the premier comprehensive high schools in the City. Take a look at our Spring of 2015 newsletter to get an idea of just some of the things we are doing!
Check back here regularly for updates as we add to the incredible website developed by S' 1964 alumnus, Steve Russell. If you are interested in being involved, donating time, money, resources, or in sharing stories for our newsletter, I would love to hear from you!
AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO LA HIGH ROMANS……….
Dear Fellow Romans:
The LAHighAlumni.org website was originally created in 2004 for the Class of 1964. In 2005 I was asked to expand the site's scope to serve all classes. Initially conceived as a tool for planning and promoting reunions, it quickly became much more. The site now includes an online archive of nostalgia and LAHS memorabilia (particularly yearbooks), as well as a method for Romans of all ages to connect with each other.
I even made it my business to attend many reunions to take pictures to post on the site. The website belongs to all alumni for sharing memories and the mutual fondness for our over-140-year-old alma mater, as well as a place to learn about the school today.
Regretfully, I can no longer continue to develop and maintain the site. THIS IS NOT A CALL FOR DOLLARS! The Harrison Trust has generously agreed to take over the cost of hosting and assist with the site maintenance. This is a call for action and participation – for me this has been an uncompensated labor of love and I believe it can only survive as such. The technical part of the site development is complete and is set up to allow people to join, login, change their information, post notices or send an e-blast to our growing database. We now need some dedicated Romans to help monitor, provide content and grow the database. The future success of this site depends on your help!
