IN MEMORY OF MILLIE HACKWORTH REDWOOD SCIENCE TEACHER 1996-2016

We are very sad to share the news of the sudden passing of Millie Hackworth Milstead, beloved chemistry teacher at Redwood from 1996-2016 and at Drake until her death on Saturday. Millie had suffered from cardiac arrest early June 11, 2020 and could not recover. She leaves behind her husband Rod Milstead, also a teacher at Drake, and three children Tyler, Sydney, and Alden who will all be students at Drake in the fall. Her positive outlook, energy and creativity made her an outstanding teacher and colleague. She will be missed by so many.

A Go Fund Me site has been established for the family: MILLIE

And a Memories Page where you can leave memories of your connection to Millie: MEMORIES

CONGRATULATIONS CLASS OF 2020!

What a year this has been for the Class of 2020! In the fall there were the North Bay fires and power outages that closed the schools. This winter and spring brought on the Coronavirus with the schools closed again and students Sheltering In Place at home with their families. Remote teaching took place for the remainder of the year, spring sports were cancelled, prom was cancelled.... This Covid 19 virus brought on an ecomomic crisis that is just beginning to unfold. And just when they were preparing for graduation, the killing of George Floyd led to angry protests of injustice and inequity all over the country. The Class of 2020 has had a unique and powerful education during these unprecedented times and will be better prepared than most to face the challenges that lie ahead. We know you can do it!

Tribute to the Class of 2020

THE LAST LESSON OF THE SCHOOL YEAR

In a message to all of Redwood's Staff, David Sondheim, Principal, sent out this memo. We are passing the links on to all the Redwood family.

I encourage each of you to read this short article to reinforce how many people of color are experiencing  the pandemic and the most recently publicized racist incidents. As a white person, I need to apply an equity lens in all matters, and stand against what has been happening to people of color not only in present times but for many past generations.

Also, this link describes steps white people can take to improve their understanding of racism and guide anti-racist actions. These terrible incidents should be yet another reminder that if we stay silent, don’t take action and let our fear stop us from discussing and acting to eliminate racism, we are complicit in the systemic racism that continues to eat away at our society. White people must take a stand for lasting change to occur.  

2020 REDWOOD ALUMNI SCHOLARSHIP GOES TO LUCY BERRY!

Congratulations to Lucy Berry '20, this year’s recipient of $2500 Alumni Scholarship. She is a straight A student, planning to go to Texas Christian University in Fort Worth to study Chemistry, actually neuro-chemistry. As the Co-Editor in Chief of this year’s Redwood Yearbook, she has been able to use her creativity, leadership and enthusiasm to overcome the challenges brought on by the coronavirus. Lucy is a diligent student and involved young woman. She is also the leader of the Tobacco Use and Prevention Education program, taking on the tough job of educating her peers. She is the embodiment of responsibility, integrity and leadership in a time of much uncertainty for her generation. She will become a graduate worth watching!

CANCELLATIONS AND CHANGES FOR 2020-2021

The Corona Virus restrictions have caused the Alumni Association to reassess our plans for the 2020-2021 school year. The safety and health of our alumni is of prime importance. As of June 1, 2020:

  • We have cancelled the Athletic Hall of Fame Banquet which we had originally postponed to October 3, 2020. We are working with the Foundation Development Director to reach out to all people who had purchased tickets and "moved them forward" to the new date. Monies will now either be refunded or donated to the Redwood Scholarship Fund for 2021.
  • We have decided not to schedule the 2021 Avenue of Giants Speaker Day and Banquet , usually held in March for both the 2020 and 2021 inductees. A new date will probably take place in winter of 2022.
  • Nominations and selections of the 2021 Athletic Hall of Fame and Avenue of Giants will still take place in October, the deadline for new nominations is October 1, 2020. www.redwoodalumni.org for details.
  • Reunions for 2020 are either being cancelled or postponed. Please contact your class for details. There is certainly no reason why 2021 reunion classes can't get started in planning!
