ROTC

I understand the ROTC program is going to be discontinued.

This is a tragedy. The program helped and saved a lot of students who would have otherwise involved themselves in less than positive activites. The program and it's leadership gave me desperately needed positive guidance at at time when I most needed it. It also helped me to develop leadership skills and a work ethic that assisted me through out my entire life. I am so GREATFULL for the ROTC program, SFC Overleesh, and MSGT… Continue

alumni day for 2017?

I'm scanning this face page and trying to find information about an Alumni day.  Is there going to be one this year and if so, what's the dates?  One class has its reunion already posted.  It would seem logical to plan class events around the general alumni meeting time.   Does this mean there is no plan for a  general gathering of all classes for 2017?

Oscar Winner

Marcel Ophuls…Hollywood High School Alumnus…Oscar Winner

 

I always knew there were a lot of talented people who had attended my alma mater Hollywood High School in California, but I had no knowledge of the Academy Award winner Marcel Ophuls until recently. He won the Oscar for his documentary film “Hotel Terminus: The Life and Times of Klaus Barbie” in 1988. The movie also received the International Critics Prize at the Cannes Film Festival that same year. His father was Max…

Tribute to Dave Edney by Ernie Nieto Flores

Today my good ole buddy Dave Will be cremated and laid to rest tomorrow. Dave and I hung out at Hollywood High School and worked together for Grant Parking.

Dave was a… Continue

In Memory of Michael Wiggins Class of 1966

I know that you contacted me a few weeks ago about Michael Wiggins 50th year high school reunion.

Sadly, Michael passed away May 19, 2012 from colon, rectal, bladder cancer.

He fought a very brave fight for almost 5 years.

Michael was a wonderful husband.

He had accomplished a great deal in his 64 years. He worked in Japan for 20 years with Akai Electronics. He was head of the United States Division before leaving to open several Electronic Discount Stores.

He retired… Continue

HHSAA SCHOLARSHIP DONATIONS FOR DESERVING STUDENT AT ACHIEVE THE HONORABLE!

The Hollywood High School Alumni Association is proud to announce the creation of the "Achieve the Honorable Scholarship" in the name of Coach (and Class of '58 alum) Dick Rippey. If anyone lived the three simple words from our school's slogan, it was Coach. This award will go to the student who best represents the qualities that selflessly echo in that phrase, in both actions and deeds... just as Coach Rippey exemplified.



The Class of '66 has started the ball rolling on this great… Continue

My Memories of Dick Rippey.....

Dear Fellow Sheiks,

 

Like all Sheiks, I am saddened by our loss of Dick Rippey. He was an extraordinary

human being and even better mentor. I remember him as a rookie coach at LeConte

under Coach Hills. He was always to the point and as Coach Hills would say "He

took care of his own disciplinary problems!" Unfortunately those of us from S'66

didn't get to experience…

Longtime PE Coach Dick Rippey Passed Away - Saturday, April 30, 2016





It is with a heavy heart that I echo the news with fellow HHS alum - that Coach Dick Rippey passed away last evening, and had been at home, being cared for by hospice. He was a graduate of Hollywood High, as was his late wife Alice.

"Uncle Dick" as some of us came to know him - embodied what it meant to come from a school like Hollywood, and always strived to set the example of Achieving the Honorable. I know I speak for many of my classmates and…

Willy M. Guldstrand

My mother in law Willy often spoke about the Alumni Association. I looked on your page and saw her postings.

I just wanted to let someone there know she passed away last Tuesday in her home. This was following the passing of

her husband Dick by a little more than 2 months. We are still in a bit of fog at the moment. We are trying to plan

a memorial on the 5th of December.



If anyone there wants to give me some stories to share about her, that would be great. You now… Continue

Year Books

FYI everybody, they sell old yearbooks at the Student Store.

I just bought a 1975 year book for our upcoming reunion.  It cost $50, cash only.  They also had 1976, 1977, and many others. It felt great to go back, walk around campus, and tell my husband a lot of good memories.

Hope for a good turn out at  he reunion in October.  I am surprised at the low registration so far.

I started searching the obvious reunion.com but couldn't find our school listed there, so I did…
