Pride, Memories and Traditions

Pride, Memories and Traditions

  • Have you ever wondered what happened to all the awards that have been won by previous Pasadena High School groups and students?  What about the history of the school? So did we! We’ve been collecting all the plaques, trophies and pictures that tell the story of the history of Pasadena High School and we’ve created a place to showcase the history and recognition of Pasadena High School students (past, present and in the future).

    We’re using the 1st floor of “A” Building to display our students’ accomplishments. We’ve got showcases, plaques, pictures and more. We want to thank the Class of 1964 50 Year Reunion Committee who have donated an additional 4’ case to be placed in “A” Building.  Down the road we'd like to add cases to the Gladiss Edwards Auditorium to showcase the numerous accomplishments of our instrumental music programs. 

    The Gladiss Edwards Auditorium, the Abel Franco Theatre and the Tom Hamilton Gymnasium are all named after these past staff members honoring them for their contributions to our school.   One of our goals is to add something in each building showcasing the inPhotographs of Notable Alumni dividual and what they contributed to Pasadena High School. We're looking for information, photos etc. on any of these individuals. 

    In addition to the showcases we have set aside wall space areas to feature the following:

    Notable Alumni: We have names but are looking for additional names (information and photos are also welcome) on who you think should be included as one of the Bulldog Notable Alumni.

    Athletics: We're looking for programs from sporting events, athletic letters, letterman's jacket, information on important events in the school's history etc.

    Drill Team: We have some pictures and a uniform from 1972 but we're looking for any other memorabilia people would be willing to share.

    Tournament of Roses: We're looking for Bulldog alumni who were members of the Royal Court or President of the Tournament of Roses. Send us names, year involved with the Tournament of Roses and the graduation year.  We have a list but need to fill in some missing pieces.

    Academics: We're looking for any information on awards received. We do have a list but need to fill in some missing pieces.  

    Marching Band: We have a lot of group pictures, plaques, trophies but we're looking for any other memorabilia people would be willing to share.

    We are looking for any memorabilia that Pasadena High School alumni would be willing to donate to the school to be displayed for everyone to see.  In addition to the above here are some examples of what we are looking for: newspaper clippings, programs from athletic games and musical/theatre programs, athletic team uniforms, letterman's jacket, athletic letters, interesting photos, cheerleader/song girl uniforms, spirt items, academic award information etc.

    To pass on any information or to donate memorabilia please contact Dr. Allison Steppes at steppes.allison@pusd.us or Liz Champion at champion.elizabeth@pusd.us
