Schools are an important part of what makes communities thrive and reputable schools enhance property values. A couple weeks ago in Hayward, the newly formed Mt. Eden High School Alumni Association & Educational Foundation had its first ever all-class reunion!
Represented were the classes of 1973 through 1999, with one from the graduating class of 1974 wearing her cheerleader dress. Let’s just say she was a big hit and everyone loved her! Needless to say, her husband and high school sweetheart from the class of 1973 didn’t get as much attention as she did.
Although the event wasn’t meant to be a fundraiser but rather to foster pride in our alma mater, we ended up raising enough money for as many as TWO scholarships for the Leadership Hayward program! I have the pleasure and privilege of serving as the organization’s President/Founder and look forward to spreading the word about how this alumni association is supporting the students who are currently enrolled at Mt. Eden High School.
Our mission is to enhance the experience of the students’ educational experiences while they are still attending high school.
