While looking through the Hollywood High website..My father went to school there I'm thinking 1929-1933..I know he mention it when I was 10 or 12 years old. He passed away in 1961,his name is almost exactly the same as mine..he was Frederick Dominic Von During.

For Car Enthusiasts

Since I had been approached about the 1963 Hollywood High School class reunion, I was doing a little poking around online for any 1963 "look back" information and material and found a really interesting article about the 1963 Corvette Z06 on here and you'll enjoy reading the car articles in the process. The story is on pages 28 and 29.

My Path To Achieving the Honorable

Four and a half years ago – when I first stepped foot on the American soil in the JFK international airport on a layover flight from Moscow to Los Angeles, I was clueless. With only a slight understanding of English, no actual life plan and $50 dollars in our pockets, my mother and I arrived to our new apartment not too far from Hollywood High School. Thinking it was a good idea for me to learn English prior to attending high school, I…

"Thoroughly Modern Millie" is Thoroughly Amazing!

The 1967 American musical film starring legendary Julie Andrews was adapted to the stage and the Hollywood High School's opening night yesterday was nothing short of amazing and I've seen many Broadway plays.
