HISTORY:
The Ad Hoc Redwood Alumni Association ("RAA") was established in October, 2006 to create an Alumni Directory and help organize Redwood's successful 50th Anniversary in April of 2009. The RAA now operates under not for profit umbrella of the Redwood High School Foundation. The Foundation Board includes alumni representation who work to align the goals of the RAA and the Foundation, for the benefit of Redwood High School. All RAA fundraising activities are administered through the Foundation and RAA By-laws have been adopted by the council and guarantee one general meeting each year to nominate and approve the slate of officers.
