2022 ALUMNI AND WILKINSON SCHOLARSHIPS WINNERS!

Unfortunately, there was a new 2022 Redwood Administration policy that prohibits us from naming scholarship recipients or giving any information about them. We did give an Alumni Scholarship and Wilkinson scholarship to several deserving students. We appreciate your continued support.

KREPS DEDICATION TO EDUCATION LIVES ON
Don Kreps, the founding Principal of Redwood High School, and his wife Eileen, also an educator, had a profound impact on the high standard of education in Marin County. They are no longer with us but have left a generous donation of $100,000 to Redwood teachers to be used over a ten-year period. We all know that the support and enrichment of teachers is key to an excellent education. A GIANT thank you to Monica Kreps Sevy ‘78 and Dan Kreps ‘66 (representing the family,) who have been working with Principal David Sondheim to make this happen.
