Harriet Hammond. a teacher for 40 years in the Pasadena Unified School District, was a motivator, an inspiration, and an all-around positive influence on the lives of countless students. On January 25, 2024, the PUSD Board of Education approved the renaming of the Pasadena High School Library to the Harriet Hammond Library Media Center. We are currently planning a celebration to mark this occasion to take place later this spring.
The Harriet Hammond Commitment to Excellence scholarship has been established in her memory. Donations made through the Pasadena Educational Foundation (PEF) will fund a scholarship to a graduating PHS senior.
