Letter of the Day: Dennis F. O'Connor

Hello Christopher Matthew Spencer,
I need the 1953 Hollywood High Year book. 
I'm a Korean War veteran and after three years in the USS Ticonderoga CVA-14, I was stationed at Fallon Nevada and while there my mother and step father moved to Grant Junction. My son Brent was born there and they have a real good college there. I never went to college but I was a conductor for the Denver & Rio Grande Rail Road. 
 
How far are you…

Today's Member Letter: Changing the Image of the Shiek!

The contents of this post do not necessarily represent the views or policies of the Hollywood High School, its employees or students; nor the Alumni Association.

Due to the present world situation and especially the Arab World, I think it’s time for HHS to change the image of the Arab Sheik (the Valentino movie idol of the 1920s) to a more fitting and modern icon and politically correct representation of a local high school.

I was always…

Examples of Champions: 2012 Scholarship Recipients

I’m always surprised when I get a surprise, because I think I have experienced so many wonderful adventures that I relish the art of learning something new! I am on the HHSAA Scholarships Committee. So we were given a stack of thirty-five applications to study. I knew it would take a couple of hours because I ponder; eschew each thought and expression by these bright young graduate students. I was impressed with the accomplishments of these outstanding students.…
